The Maui Mongoose Invasion

Mongooses are not native to Hawaii. They were brought to the islands in 1883 in hopes they would control the rat population. They do eat rats, but because rats are nocturnal and mongooses hunt for food during the day, they simply don’t eat enough rats to help control the population. Now, Maui experiences problems caused by mongooses from almost causing extinction of the Nene Hawaiian Goose to eating ground-nesting birds and their eggs, to carrying diseases that can be fatal to humans. If you have mongoose on your property, you should never attempt to remove them on your own. Call on the expert pest control specialists at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions to ensure the mongoose are removed safely.

Are Mongooses Dangerous?

Did you know that a mongoose can kill a king cobra, all by its little old self? It's true. The king cobra is the largest venomous snake on earth. It can weigh as much as 35 pounds and grow to a length of 20 feet! If a human is bitten by a king cobra, they are likely to be dead in less than half an hour. Yet, a mongoose can hunt, kill, and devour a king cobra without too much trouble at all. So, if you are asking the question, "are mongooses dangerous?" Then the answer would be a resounding, Yes!
