termites in Florida

Post by Judy » Mon May 16, 2005 3:15 pm

I was, or thought I was ready to purchase a MH and place it on some land I own in Florida. On a recent trip there to make some decisions, I was told by several people, that it was a very bad idea to get a wood frame or MH home in southern Florida due to the extreme problem with sub-terrainian termites. Does anyone have any specific knowledge concerning this? How are there so many MH Retirement Parks in Florida then? Is there someway to treat the MH or ground to protect against termites? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Virtually all homes are wood framed, even most brick homes are actually a brick veneer around a wood frame.

Regular termite treatments are a must, most people just sign up for a yearly contract.

You can check with a pest control service and they can treat the area where the home is going to be set. Any good pest control service can do it, but I do not recommend Terminex. I had a very unpleasant experience with them.

What do thry look like?

The reason that I asked is that two weeks ago I had our haouse treated for sub-terrainian termites. Several dys ago our house has been the home of hundreds of little black bug flying and crawling around the inside of our house.
