Don't buy mulch before you read this.

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 country 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.
