Here is the article (from a Technical Assistant, Region of Peel, near Toronto):

If you buy mulch this★spring/summer make sure you know where it came from.

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 take it 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 where the Termites have gotten a stronghold 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 ever had. These termites can eat a house in no time at all and there★★apparently is not good control against them, so tell your friends/family the★★own homes to avoid cheap mulch and know where it came from.
