When most homeowners think of a highly destructive pest that can cause severe structural damage by attacking their home’s structural wood, the pest that comes to most people’s mind first is the termite; and for good reason! Wood consuming termites are certainly the insect that causes the most severe structural damages to properties. However, they aren’t the only sheriff in town so to speak, the carpenter ant ranks a close second behind them, and while they don’t actually eat the wood they are damaging, they do have the ability to cause significant damage to homes and other properties if proper measures aren’t taken to prevent and control them!
Here in Hawaii, we are privileged to have thousands of native species of plants and animals that have not had any natural predators until man introduced them to the islands. One of the most destructive of these predatory species introduced is the Norway rat, presumed to have been introduced to the Islands on cargo ships decades ago. Since that time, several plant species as well as turtle and ground bird species have declined. The Norway rat has also been blamed for the percentage of reduction in crops produced in Hawaii like pineapples, coffee, and other fruits and vegetables.
