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.
Termites! No matter who you are or where you live, this single word can cause fear and panic in your heart and mind – rightfully so. Termites cause over $5 billion in damages annually here in the United States, most of which is not covered under insurance policies. These silent destroyers often go unnoticed for months or years, and are typically only discovered after the damage they have caused has become severe.
If you have ever experienced a termite infestation then you understand just how devastating these pests can be to the structure of your home. Termites in Hawaii, including both ground termites and drywood termites are a serious threat to the soundness of wood structures. Their number one mission in life is to consume wood, which leaves us all in danger of repairing the costly damages that termites leave behind.
