Are you having trouble with feral chickens in Honolulu, Kailua, Mokapu, or Oahu? It can sometimes feel like these pests have taken over the islands. And, it is partly true. Since red jungle fowl were introduced by early Polynesian settlers, these roosters have been trying to rule the roost. They disrupt families with their loud caws, and drive dogs crazy. As they move about your property, they damage your lawn and garden by pecking and scratching everywhere they go. They leave their feces in the backyard and on walkways and driveways, presenting a slipping hazard, and a potential health hazard. Feral chicken are known to carry human spread pathogens. These diseases are spread through contact with feces and urine. That makes these bird more than a nuisance pest. Fortunately, Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions has some solutions for you.
Mosquitoes have been a problem all over Hawaii since these stinging insects were introduced from bilge water carried in on whaling ships in the early 19th century. They can be found on all the islands, but the wetter the island, the more mosquitoes there are. Let's take a look at these nasty little buggers, and see if there is something we can do about them driving us crazy.
The consistently temperate climate in Hawaii makes it the ideal home for a host of plants, insects, and wildlife, many of which did not originate in this state. Termites are one of them--or I should say seven of them. The two worst termite species are the Formosan subterranean termite and the West Indian drywood termite, neither of which existed on the islands past around a hundred years ago. Within one human lifetime these termite species have gone from a few random occurrences, to $100 million in property damage each year.
