When it comes to pest control, it’s ultimately up to a homeowner and their family to determine a level of tolerance for bugs and other pests.

Pest Tech Hawaii has helped local families fend off termites and household critters since March 2016. The experienced Pest Tech Hawaii team features a full staff of 24 employees with more than 150 years of combined experience in the field.


“We’re a full-service company, so we do everything from pest fumigation to orange oil treatment, to ground treatment and Centricon,” said Ian Mateo, who previously served as general manager of Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions for 15 years before launching Pest Tech Hawaii. “We all live with bugs, but personally, I don’t tolerate them. Call us when you’ve reached that point where you can’t handle it anymore, and we’ll take care of the problem for you.”

Mateo notes that the hot, humid summer months cause an influx in cockroaches, as well as termites that thrive in the warm, moist climate. The full-service company is capable of handling everything from pesky ants, centipedes and bees to dry-wood and ground termites and wildlife, including taking control of bothersome chickens, cats and rodents.

“We pride ourselves on being able to offer traditional tent fumigation as a means of termite remediation, but we also offer alternatives like orange oil, which is becoming popular in part because you don’t need to vacate your home while toxic chemicals are used,” said Mateo, who also is an associate certified entomologist by the Entomological Society of America. “This is important because some companies only offer one or the other, but we have multiple options available.”
