Never been to Hawaii so not familiar with your bugs, but I had some Cherry lumber that got infested with powder post beetles. Did not want to use poison or anything that might change the color of the wood so I heat treated it. Built a small solar kiln out of osb panels and a glass top. Easily heated the wood up to 160 degrees and kept it there for a couple of days. No more bugs.
