The Hawaiian Islands have been blessed with a good number of things that are appealing to those who have grown up here as well as the thousands of tourists who visit us each year. Pristine beaches, the blue of the ocean, the tropical climate, and the beautiful vegetation everywhere you look are all things that draw people to our beautiful, tropical paradise. Locals and visitors are not the only ones who love the weather here, however. Hawaii is full of woodland creatures who call this place home as well as many kinds of pests who never take a day off from trying to make their way into homes all over the islands.
There are some states where termites are much less of a problem during the winter. Freezing temperatures, frozen ground, and a thick layer of snow, keeps subterranean termites dormant, deep in the ground. And, while there may be snow on the peaks of Big Island, there is not likely to be any snow cover in your yard this winter. That means termites aren't going to be dormant at all. So, if you want to protect your little slice of Hawaiian paradise, you're going to need to have ongoing termite protection.
