ground termites

Did you know that your Hawaii home may be under attack at this very moment? It is not an attack from some foreign country or from a neighbor who is upset because you forgot to wish him a happy birthday. It is not an attack from a passing tropical system either. This attack is stealthy and executed under the cover of darkness – well under the cover of dirt, anyway. What on earth is this stealthy and elusive attacker of your home? Termites!

Yes, termites. These small insects are not called “the silent destroyers” for nothing! Subterranean termites build their colonies deep underground where they remain protected, moist, and hidden from daylight. They would not survive for long otherwise, so they move from their lair to a food source through little mud tubes that they make along the top of the ground and up your foundation. These mud tubes, and the termites they conceal, often go unnoticed allowing the termites full access into the heart of your home where they will eat away at the beams and sills to their hearts content. It is no wonder that these insects are the cause of over 5 billion dollars’ worth of damages to homes and businesses across the United States each year; and to make matters worse, most insurance policies do not cover termite damages.

Now that you know that your home or business may be at risk of a termite invasion, what should you do? The best way to know whether or not you have termites silently eating away at the structure beams of your home is with a termite inspection from the certified specialists here at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions. Termite inspections are a MUST if you are thinking about buying or selling your home. It is also the only sure way to know whether or not termites have already found their way into your existing home.

If you find that termites have indeed invaded your home, there is no need to panic. Our highly trained technicians can eliminate those elusive little pests for you. If you are fortunate enough to find that they haven’t begun to eat your home yet, Sandwich Isle Pest can still help you. We are certified operators of the highly acclaimed Sentricon® Colony Elimination System with Always Active technology. We can install discreet safe baiting stations around your property that offers termites a ‘meal’ that they love even more than wood! This bait is then taken back to the colony by the worker termites and shared. Before you know it, no more colony!
