Pest Control – In Hawaii It First Begins With Knowing What Two Termites to Exterminate
• Formosan Subterranean Termites – You need to know that these are the most destructive and aggressive termites in Hawaii. The colony size can number in the millions and can forage in underground tunnels over 100 yards horizontally. These pests can tunnel, go over foundations and can penetrate by fractures, construction joints, and utility penetrations in search of a food source (wood). This termite can cause you major structural damage if left untreated. In other words it can cost you a lot of money. Pest control can be a serious challenge if not handled by a specialized Honolulu pest control company. The best methods of pest control in Hawaii for the Formosan termites are Sentricon ground termite baiting system and liquid termiticide ground treatment.
• Dry wood Termites – a shared termite found in many structures in Hawaii, especially in Honolulu. It lives in the wood that they are consuming and is commonly found in your furniture, doors, windowsills, in addition as other wooden members of your structure. One of the earliest signs of Dry wood termite infestation is the presence of ‘droppings’, sand-like fecal pellets that are pushed out of the nest. The best advice is for you to have a specialized Hawaii termite inspection company examine the structure. The amount of damages to structures is comparatively small in comparison to Formosan Subterranean Termites but given time, they can ultimately do you serious damage. The recommended method for eradication is tent fumigation. identify treatment can be done if the infestation is confined to a small area or if fumigation cannot be done.
In conclusion, If you live in Hawaii or planning on moving to Honolulu, West Oahu, Windward Oahu or East Honolulu you need to know about these destructive pest.
