Wildlife in Hawaii

What wildlife species are in Hawaii?

Wild animals, including mongoose, feral chickens and feral pigs are a nuisance and can be potentially dangerous when they move into our homes or businesses.  As rural areas are becoming more developed, these animals are more often moving into urban and suburban areas in search of food and shelter.

Why do I have them?

Wild animals are attracted to areas that have easy access to food sources such as vegetable gardens, bird feeders, or unprotected domestic animal feeds. They tend to look for areas that provide a warm shelter that will protect them from the elements such as attics, basements, walls and chimneys. If there are easy access points such as loose siding, broken windows or missing foundation vents, animals will be more likely to set up residence.  

Are they dangerous?

Wild animals in Hawaii are known carriers of fleas and can transmit flea-bourne diseases such as typhus ricketsia.  Wild animals can also become aggressive if they feel threatened and their dung can attract loads of flies.

How do I get rid of wildlife?

Confronting a trespassing pest on your own is never a good idea.  A wild animal is unpredictable and dangerous no matter how small or harmless looking. Calling a professional exterminator, like the professionals at Sandwich Isle, is always recommended when dealing with nuisance wildlife.  Professional wildlife control technicians have the equipment and knowledge necessary to safely remove the animal from your property without injuring it or themselves. They will then relocate the captured animal to a more appropriate location. Wildlife control technicians are also up to date on regulations involving species that may be protected by law and require special handling. A professional exterminator will also be able to assist with cleaning up the animal's nest, droppings, and food remnants in order to prevent the spread of disease and bacteria.   

Can I do it myself?

When handling wild animals, it is never a good idea to attempt it alone.

Is the treatment safe?

Sandwich Isle pest professionals utilize humane traps that are equipped with shade, food and water.  Traps are removed daily to ensure the safety of you, your family and the animal.  All products are EPA registered and our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken prior to service.
