Mulch accelerates effects of climate change!

I received this message from a cousin who lives in the USA. Could be important info to pass on to everyone we know.

For all you mulch buyers:

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.

It may be be showing up in retails stores 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.

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 make sure they know where it came from. Proof at time of purchase! If you take it home, its too late!
