when you hear a tree hugger liberal ignoramus? Just ignore them. They believe the "government" does everything and anything to protect us feeble People from danger. Boo hoo hoo! Nothing can be further from the truth.
If the government REALLY cared about human life? It would regulate or ban abortion clinics, let the traditional Family take care of children, and ban so-called "smart" cars and any car weighing less than 2800 lbs. for true safety of life.
DDT was also a miracle insecticide, and the research done by another stupid woman was flawed severely. DDT is not dangerous at all. Used properly, it is perfectly safe. You can die from drinking too much water also. Anyway, millions of people around the world have died due to the banning of DDT. Malaria is the disease. DDT killed the mosquito spreading Malaria. But some liberal elitist said NO to DDT.
So look at the EPA like a Russian iron fist and those liberal politicians who produce these big nanny government blowhards. Because liberals are nothing but thumb-sucking mommas boys and girls in reality. Afraid of their own shadows.
I hope by now you have gotten appropriate answers to you question. I would have suggested that you find a good home inspector or termite inspector to help you. I see you are in Florida so I am not sure why your question is showing up in Garnerville, in Rockland County, NY but I would love to know how you solved your problem. I am a newly active Trulia agent, so I am sorry I got to you so late on this.
