LAWRENCE, N.J. — Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions of Peal City, Hawaii, becomes the first company in Hawaii to be approved for BedBug Free membership. Sandwich Isle joins an expanding international network of pest management firms committed to the guidelines and practices of Bed Bug Central.

Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions www.sandwichisle.com began as single-person operation in 1997 and has since grown into one of the largest pest management firms in Hawaii. The company has also created one of Hawaii’s first bed bug, canine-scent detection branches. Michael Botha, founder of Sandwich Isle, decided to get his company BedBug Free approved to continue providing Hawaii with the latest methods in bed bug management.

“Our company is constantly striving to improve our pest management services,” said Botha. “With the resurgence of bed bug infestations in Hawaii, we realized that in order to continue providing the best service, we needed to acquire the latest insight on bed bug technologies and treatment methods from industry leaders such as BedBug Central”.

bedbugFREE is a network of “like-minded companies sharing the philosophies of Bed Bug Central.” All companies undergo a rigorous screening process overseen by research entomologists Rick Cooper and Jeff White. Approved companies are then listed as bedbugFREE on Bed Bug Central’s website and in turn, receive referrals as part of the bedbugFREE network.
