It is never good when termites get into a home. Termites are wood eaters that have no idea they are eating away at your equity. They're just doing what they were made to do. But all of that damage is going to have to be addressed at some point. And those termites aren't going to pay for the damage--you are.

When it comes to termites, drywood termites are a unique threat. These termites don't just damage your home; they can target hardwood objects inside your home. That means wooden collectibles, antiques, keepsakes, and furniture are at risk of being damaged.

Here in Hawaii, we have every kind of termite. The temperate climate in our state is perfect for a wide range of insect species. So the experts at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions have the highest level of education in dealing with this pest threat. The two pest methods that work best to fight drywood termites are fumigation and borate treatments.


This is a powerful pest control protocol that can be used to address everything from a widespread infestation to a single household item. When drywood termites have spread throughout an entire structure, the problem can be quickly addressed by tenting the structure. The fumigants get into every kickout hole created by these insects and destroys these wood damaging pest where they hide. When drywood termites are isolated to a single piece of furniture or household belonging, it is possible to address them with a chamber fumigation. These smaller fumigations can be done at our facility or on-site at your home or business.

Borate Treatments

At Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, we are committed to eco-friendly pest control. We believe borate treatments are a perfect fit. After application, the borates offer residual protection that lasts for the life of the wood with little to no impact on other creatures in or around the structure. And borate treatments have the added benefit of causing little disruption for all occupants. This pest control protocol can be applied without displacing anyone.

If you need protection for your Hawaii home or business, you can trust the termite control experts here at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions. Our QualityPro-certified team is one of the bests in the business, and we have on-staff, certified entomologists who develop and oversee the control services we offer.
