Overall, there is nothing quite like living the island life.
Without even knowing it, many homeowners in Hawaii are attracting cockroaches to their homes and properties. It might just be that the cockroaches have found their way in through the cracks and crevices that are in the walls, windows and doors. It might be the leaky water pipes in the basements, kitchens or bathrooms. Or maybe it’s the crumbs that were left on the floor of their kitchen throughout the day. Cockroaches are driven by the need for shelter, water, and food. Our homes offer that and so much more, why wouldn’t a cockroach want to come in?
Norway rats are an invading species that can get inside your home in Hawaii. Believe us, you don’t want these rats roaming around wreaking havoc in your living space.

The tropical, Asian-native mynah bird is a medium-sized bird with a short tail and prominent beak. You can often identify them from their innovative songs that consist of squeaks, whistles, and imitated sound – they're quite noisy! Mynah birds eat fruit and invertebrates, cause damage to crops, and are quite aggressive with other small animals, from squirrels to other birds. They will damage the eggs and harm the babies of other birds, too. They can spread diseases to both humans and animals, and create problems for businesses.
