   If you use mulch around your house be very careful about buying  
mulch this year. After the hurricane in New Orleans many trees were  
blown over. These trees were then turned into mulch and the state is  
trying to get rid of tons and tons of this mulch to any state or  
company who will come and haul it away. So it will be showing up in  
Home Depot and Lowes at dirt cheap prices with one huge problem;  
Formosan Termites will be the bonus in many of those bags. New  
Orleans is one of the few areas in the country were the Formosan  
Termites has gotten a strong hold and most of the trees blown down  
were already badly infested with those termites. Now we may have the  
worst case of transporting a problem to all parts of the cou ntry  
that we have ever had. These termites can eat a house in no time at  
all and we have no good control against them, so tell your friends  
that own homes to avoid cheap mulch and know were it came from.
