Company Review

Since 1999, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control has been serving Oahu residents and commercial properties on Oahu and neighboring islands. Kama’aina prides itself on providing the safest and most up-to-date pest control methods. Being environmentally conscious, Kama’aina utilizes the greenest possible products available for pest control.

Being locally-owned and operated, it understands the unique needs of the island communities. As such, the company was awarded first place of Hawaii’s Best 2019 People’s Choice Award, as awarded by the Star Advertiser. Its offices are located at 940B Queen Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96814.

As a unique alternative to tenting, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control offers Pure Orange Oil for the treatment of termites. Made from orange rinds, Pure Orange Oil contains 95% pure d-limonene as its active ingredient for eradication of drywood termites, carpenter ants, and wood-boring beetles. Pure Orange Oil is natural with a low-impact on the environment. Other benefits of its use include: fresh orange scent, eco-friendliness, no moving out for tenting, avoiding loss of food and consumables, family and pet friendly. Although no current information is listed with the Better Business Bureau, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control has been listed with Angie’s list since 2010 with a current B rating or 4.2 out of 5 stars.

Beyond its use of Pure Orange Oil for treatment of wood-eating pests, it utilizes the most environmentally-responsible and safe treatments for those pests specific to the islands including the Hawaiian mosquito and Hawaiian scorpion, along with the American cockroach, the German cockroach, centipedes, ants, bedbugs, houseflies, fleas, ticks, rodents, and birds.

As with the other types of pest treatments offered, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control offers professional treatment for fleas and ticks in an effective yet safe treatment for the family and pets alike. The company advises that pets be washed with a flea and tick shampoo and the use of topical treatments, collars, or pills as advised by the pets’ veterinarian.

The company will inspect the property, and develop an appropriate eradication plan. The technician can then apply full-service treatments inside the home and to the yard, followed by routine follow-ups.

Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control’s mantra is to first achieve, and then maintain, a pest-free environment for its customers, residential and commercial. Continuing education to provide the most up-to-date methods of pest control is an active part of the company’s efforts. Many of its customers seem quite pleased with those efforts and more.

It is quite well-known for its termite control including for real estate companies around the islands. It provides full termite inspection reports for many brokers and realtors for purchases and sales. In a review, one broker highly recommends Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control, writing that the company does an outstanding job helping with the broker’s needs. The review also told of the promptness of service with time sensitivity to deadlines.  

Other reviewers have commended the company for its handling of cockroach problems. One reviewer commented on how well the service technician explained the how and why of roaches, and how its treatment handles the problem. While the technician said that it could take up to 21 days to see full eradication, this reviewer said that after the first day, no more living roaches were found, considering it a completely successful treatment.

Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control offers free estimates for its residential and commercial customers. Specialists in termite eradication, it offers a special on its Sentricon System service for new installations. Said to wipe out the entire termite colony, it offers fast installation with immediate and ongoing protection. With its special on the Sentricon System, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control claims the average saved is $1,500.

Despite free estimates and its specials, cost is one area which reviewers tend to leave negative reviews. Several have complained of the cost of services. One reviewer praised Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control for being prompt but also complained of a very expensive quote. With only a spot treatment needed in one area, she says she was quoted $1,600.

It provides control for a wide-range of Hawaii’s pest problems from the common to less seen. It offers some of the most eco-friendly treatments available today.

For its services, Kama’aina Termite and Pest Control has seen mostly positive reviews, although due to reviewer concerns with cost, it would be a good idea to ask for a written estimate before hiring.
