Tenting in Hawai'i is not camping

Here's something that you aren't likely to experience in the Pacific NW. 
I had to sketch fast to keep up with this efficient crew
Periodically in tropical climates, a homeowner may have to call in the pest control experts and have the house "tented ". Our son had his home treated for termite control today. 
Fumigation is a method of pest control that completely fills an area with gaseous pesticides—or fumigants—to suffocate or poison the pests within. 
Kama'aina Pest Control crew tenting the house
This was our first and only experience with tenting for pest control but the crew and other representatives from were thoroughly professional and easy to work with. They had the entire job finished in no time and made sure everyone knew the safety requirements.
