If you live in Maui, chances are you are dealing with household pests of one sort or another, and pests can be much more than just a headache. They are potentially dangerous to your health and property. Pests, like the subterranean termite, will eat away at your home 24 hours a day non-stop. Rodents will spread illness and chew on wires in wall voids. Fleas are not just a major hassle, they can pass harmful diseases onto you and your pets, such as typhus and tapeworm. But take heart, because there are things you can do to protect yourself from these invasive insects and animals.

  • Do a careful inspection of your roof for any leaks and take measures to seal those leaks. Make sure all downspouts are in good working order and that gutters are not blocked or damaged. And make sure all water is draining away from your foundation.

  • Prune trees and shrubs that are near your home so that insects don't use them as a bridge. Also, consider trimming them in a way that allows airflow around your foundation. This will keep things dry.

  • Trim trees several feet back from your exterior walls and roofline so that pests don't have easy access to these vulnerable areas.

  • On the windward side of the island, the ground is more likely to be wet, so installing a plastic vapor barrier will help reduce moisture in the crawl spaces under your home; and be sure to keep all crawl space doors tightly closed.

  • Stack any wood products at least several feet away from your home and up off the ground.

  • Make sure all garbage is stored in tightly sealed containers.

  • Keep your home clean and free of crumbs and spills.

Though there are many things you can do to protect your Maui home, there is an easier, and more effective, solution. Here at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions we over three comprehensive packages for addressing invasive pests.

  • Premier Pest Protection: This is our entrance level package, but it is far from "entrance level" in its scope. At this base level, you're going to get effective control for over 30 common household pests, year round.

  • Premier Pest Plus: There are some pests that require more resources to control and are unique in their control requirements. That is why it is necessary to make this middle of the road package. It doesn't offer better control for those 30 common household pests covered in our base package; rather, it adds monitoring and protection against rodents, fleas, and ticks.
