Aloha Termite & Pest Control

Your Ultimate Defense Against CRBs and Mosquitoes

 

In the lush landscapes of Hawaii, preserving the natural beauty and safeguarding homes and businesses from invasive pests is crucial. Since 1999, Aloha Termite & Pest Control has stood as a stalwart defender of our island paradise, earning the trust and appreciation of the community. Their motto, “If you have pests, we have solutions,” reflects their unwavering commitment to keeping Hawaii pest-free. Recently, Aloha Termite & Pest Control was recognized as the Best of Hawaii in the pest control division, a testament to their dedication and effectiveness.

Nick Testa, the Education and Safety Manager at Aloha Termite & Pest Control, joined Island Life Live to discuss the significant threats posed by the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) and mosquitoes, and how their team tackles these challenges head-on.
 

The Menace of the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle

 

The Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) is an invasive species that poses a severe threat to Hawaii’s economy and natural beauty. These beetles primarily feed on coconut and other palm trees, including the native Loulu Palms. The beetles cause massive devastation, which can lead to irreversible damage to these vital trees. The CRB larvae, which can grow up to four inches in size, live in mulch, decaying logs, and soil, while the adult beetles, about three inches in size, primarily stay in the crowns of trees.

The presence of CRBs can be identified by the damage they cause to the central spire of trees and the jagged wear on the leaves. These beetles are not only destructive but also mobile, capable of flying up to three miles a night. This mobility makes containment and eradication efforts challenging, but Aloha Termite & Pest Control is well-equipped to handle the task.

 

Aloha Termite & Pest Control’s Approach To combat the CRB threat

 

We utilize the natural uptake ability of trees to administer substances that harm pests without damaging the plants. This method ensures that while the beetles are eradicated, the trees remain healthy and thriving.

It’s extremely important to be aware of early detection in managing CRB infestations. By addressing the problem at its source and using environmentally friendly treatments, Aloha Termite & Pest Control plays a crucial role in protecting Hawaii’s palm trees and, by extension, its ecosystem.

Battling Mosquitoes: A Persistent Threat to Hawaii

 

As Hawaii enters mosquito season, these pests become a significant concern for residents. Mosquitoes are not only annoying but also pose health risks by transmitting diseases. Mosquito larvae can remain dormant in the soil for months, making it essential to address the problem comprehensively.

Aloha Termite & Pest Control tackles mosquito infestations by applying products to the ground to prevent larvae from maturing. For adult mosquitoes, they use attractants that sterilize them, breaking the reproductive cycle and reducing the mosquito population. This multi-faceted approach ensures effective control and provides relief to those plagued by these persistent pests.

Beyond CRBs and mosquitoes, Aloha Termite & Pest Control offers a wide range of services to address various pest issues, including bed bugs and termites. Their team is equipped with the knowledge, experience, and tools to handle any pest problem, ensuring homes and businesses remain safe and comfortable.

FAQ & Answers

Should I be worried if I find a Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle on my property?

If you have coconut, fan, date or other types of palm trees on your property, they may be at risk of severe damage that may lead to the death of the plant if infested with CRB.  Other plants that may be at risk of experiencing damage are taro, pineapple, banana, hala, sisal, and sugarcane.  

How do I know if my plants have CRB infesting them?

Damage can be found on the inner, new fronds of palms in the shape of sharp “V” cuts across the leaflets or by a generally unhealthy appearance of the fronds.  There may also be bore holes visible in the crown of the palm or other parts of the plant.

Where did CRB come from?

Native to Asia, between India and Indonesia, Coconut Rhinoceros Beetles made their way across the Pacific, having devastating effects in Guam, Samoa, Fiji, and other South Pacific islands before being detected in Hawaii.  It is not completely clear how CRB made their way to Hawaii, but it is known that they can fly up to 2 miles a day, making their way around each island.  Both adults and larvae are accidentally transported through mulch and landscaping materials covering greater distances.

Is there anything that can be done to protect my plants?<br />

Yes!  Besides vigilantly inspecting all mulch, potting soils, and new landscaping for any beetles or larvae, and you can contact Aloha Termite & Pest Control to provide you with a treatment and monitoring program to protect your beloved plants from any future damage.

How much does it cost to remove Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle from my property?
