Have you picked out your Christmas tree yet? If you’re like us, you probably prefer the real kind at Christmas, despite the cost or the frustration of lost pine needles on the floor. Fake Christmas trees are nice looking, and perhaps even easier to have in your home than a real Christmas tree, but they just don’t inspire that Holiday feeling like a real Christmas tree does! Whether you’re choosing a Norfolk Island Pine (first brought to Hawaii in 1852 and the official Christmas tree of Hawaii!) this year, or even a Leyland Cypress, bringing home the amazing smell of the Christmas aloha spirit with a real Christmas tree really completes your preparations for the Christmas celebration.

In paradise, they still have to worry about rat lungworm.
Hawaiians were urged to keep their home gardens free of rodents, snails, and slugs and wash all fruits and vegetables before visually inspecting them to make sure they are free of slugs or snails.
According to the American Automobile Association, this coming Thanksgiving Day weekend will be one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. People will be hopping in their cars and heading to the airport to go and visit family and friends all across the country to celebrate Thanksgiving together. And because we’re in the lovely state of Hawaii, many folks in this state will be hosting family and friends from afar who will be looking to enjoy a beautiful and sunny Hawaiian Thanksgiving celebration. Sometimes, unbeknownst to the travelers, they pick up bed bugs along the way, and if they are coming to stay at your house, you could be the final destination for bed bugs! Sandwich Isle wants you to be able to enjoy your holiday season without bed bugs, so we’re offering you a few prevention tips to make sure your holiday visitors don’t bring these pests with them into your home.
Bed bugs are spreading across the country like wild fire, and Hawaii is no exception. There have been many sitings of these blood sucking parasites in all manner of facilities. Homes, apartment buildings, hotels and other commercial facilities all can have bed bugs at one time or another and it’s not a problem of having unsanitary conditions. These pests don’t care if you have a tiny rent controlled apartment or if you’ve rented the swankiest room in a 5 star hotel- they can live and go anywhere, and as long as they have a blood meal ready and waiting (meaning a human, lying fast asleep in a bed), these pests can survive.
Do you have bed bugs in your home or business? Here are a few signs you should look for when inspecting for bed bugs, and things you can do to prevent bringing them home when you travel.
