EPA fines Kamaaina Termite & Pest Control

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The government has ordered a Hawaii fumigation company to pay a $17,000 fine for safety violations.

The Environmental Protection Agency says Kamaaina Termite & Pest Control did not follow required safety precautions over the last four years.

Among the violations, the EPA says workers did not turn off stove pilot lights, failed to post warning signs and did not remove food from some units in the Keola Lai Condominium before treatment.

Hawaii News Now reached out to Kamaaina Termite & Pest Control, however, the company did not return our call.

Earlier this year, the company provided Hawaii News Now with a picture which they say proved that the food was properly trashed.
