Residents of the Keola La'i condominium on Queen Street will spend a week away from home next month as the 2-year-old high-rise undergoes treatment for termites.

Chamber fumigation of the 44-story building that spans the 600 block of Queen Street in Kakaako is scheduled to take place between Sept. 12 and 18 to address moderate but worrisome termite activity during the last year.

"Not all residents have a problem," said Russell Gouveia, president of the Association of Apartment Owners of Keola La'i. "There are only a small number but that number has been growing. The ones that do have a problem have it to different degrees. The people I've talked to have found (termite) droppings here or there."

General contractor Nordic PCL is footing the sizable bill for the fumigation, relocation of residents of the building's 352 occupied units and related expenses. The building is managed by A&B Properties.

Displaced households have been given the option of accepting a one-week stay at a Waikiki hotel (including meals) and a $500 food-replacement gift card, or a lump sum payment between $3,350 (single occupant) and $4,000 (three or more occupants).

Nordic PCL also has agreed to hire bellmen to help tenants with their temporary move, caretakers to mind plants and aquariums, and housekeepers to vacuum apartments before residents return.

Kamaaina Termite and Pest Control, which will handle the fumigation, will bring in two chamber fumigation experts from California to consult on the project. The company also has agreed to treat residents' new, incoming furniture for up to a year after the fumigation.
