Let’s Talk Termites!

Termites will soon be swarming, and homeowners should be prepared to protect their homes. Annually, Formosan termites cause over $1 billion of damage in the United States alone and the gulf coast is a known hot spot for this invasive pest. 

Learn about termites from the experts at the University of Florida, Florida A & M University and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services on Tues., Apr. 16, 6-7:30 p.m. at UF/IFAS Extension Santa Rosa County Office, 6263 Dogwood Drive in Milton.  

A panel discussion will be led by state experts and professors to answer your termite questions. Specific topics will include:

  • Termite biology including simple ways to identify them.
  • Available termite pest control protection for the home.
  • Identifying and fixing the weaknesses in and around homes.

The event is free and no preregistration is required. For more information, contact Mary Salinas.
