If you live in Maui, chances are you are dealing with household pests of one sort or another, and pests can be much more than just a headache. They are potentially dangerous to your health and property. Pests, like the subterranean termite, will eat away at your home 24 hours a day non-stop. Rodents will spread illness and chew on wires in wall voids. Fleas are not just a major hassle, they can pass harmful diseases onto you and your pets, such as typhus and tapeworm. But take heart, because there are things you can do to protect yourself from these invasive insects and animals.
So far you have been fortunate enough to escape their wrath, but many of your neighbors are battling them as we speak. They lurk in the dark recesses of your home undetected and can cause extensive damage before you even know they have invaded.

What is this dreaded nemesis that is causing so much stir in Hawaii lately? Well, it’s termites of course! These little insects with huge appetites will eat anything wood that it can reach. In fact, they cause over $5 billion annually in damages to homes and businesses across the United States. Yes, that is a ‘b’ as in billion; and to make matters worse, most insurance carriers won’t cover the cost of damages done by these overeaters.
