Two of the biggest termite control companies in Hilo are Hilo Termite & Pest Control and Bowman Termite & Pest Control. They have both been serving the residents of Hilo for a number of years and quite a number of homes over this time. Clearly both are good companies, but they each have their individual pros and cons so this article will review both of these companies to see how they compare to each other.
Category 1: Number of Years in Business
One good sign is that a company has been around a long time. Word about bad companies eventually gets around, so either you hear about them and can avoid them or they eventually go out of business, so if a company has been around a long time it is a good sign.
On this measure, Hilo Termite wins. Hilo Termite has been in business since 1963, which is a very long time, while Bowman Termite was started in 2001. This might not seem like a long time, but this is Bowman’s second termite control business, he started his first business in 1978 and did so well that a corporate entity decided to buy him out. So Bowman has more experience than its 2001 start might indicate.
Category 2: Size of Business
The bigger a business and the more employees it has, the better able it is to serve you. On this measure Bowman and Hilo Termite run almost neck and neck and based on the number of employees that they each have they will be able to serve you well. Bowman Termite has 26 employees, while Hilo Termite has 28 employees, so either has the team to get big jobs done. One difference is that all of Hilo Termite’s employees serve the Big Island, while Bowman’s workers serve Maui and Oahu too.
Category 3: Services Offered
Both Hilo Termite and Bowman Termite offer a full range of termite and pest control services from fumigation to ground treatments and inspections. Both companies offer free estimates for their services, so either should be able to meet your needs.
Category 4: Customer Reviews and Ratings
Neither Bowman Termite or Hilo Termite have much in the way of reviews and ratings of their service on their websites or on yelp or yellowpages. Since they have been in business for so long the absence of negative reviews is a good sign for both companies as word would get out if they did a poor job.
Category 5: Quality of their Website
This measure is more subjective, but I would give the edge to Bowman Termite. The reason is that they provide more information on the termite control problems that you may be facing and how they can be solved.
