    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    I want to know how they keep flies away. I have never had an issue with flies around food or anything.

    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    I've seen quite a few bees in the park. Especially in the little flowers that line the border of the outside portion on iasw.

    And a year or two ago I remember hearing a story where they had to close down Big Thunder Trail because there was a swarm of bees in the area.

    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    Since the park is built over an old orange grove there is a good chance their termites are subterrainian. You don't tent in that case. You drill into the ground and inject the poison beneath the surface of the soil. If they treat this way, they could do the work while the park is closed and we would never know there's a problem.

    (This is based on my own experience with termites in Anaheim.)

    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    I don't think they inspect as often as they could. Next time you are in the Pirates queue look up at the wood "beams" just as you enter the loading area, especially the right hand side. Many are "pin holed," a sign of infestation. (And yes, sometimes this is done to give the effect of age on new pieces causing them appeared weathered or antique. Based on previous experience, this doesn't appear to have the same characteristics as man-made effects. It is costly to fix, but more costly to ignore when it happens to your personal effects.)

    My wife and I saw one scurry under the fridge at the food shop next to the Jungle Cruise a few months ago. Broad daylight. Creeped her out for the rest of the day.

    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    Simply put, horticulture guys are wizards or gods, or alchemists. The only pests i've seen are the FAT cats wandering around backstage, and the gnats above everyone's heads in the WOC viewing area.

    AND!!! I have never actually seen a Horticulture CM, i'm telling you...wizards or gods
    Life begins when the season starts...nothing matters between november and march

    FYI, a lot of what appears to be wood isn't. The sculptors and painters at Disney are masters of illusion.

    Re: How does the DLR deal with termites?

    I've seen plenty of pests! Thing is, they're mostly backstage! The roaches are HUGE! I've seen some Dragonflies. There definitely bees, they had to close down screamin a few months ago because of it. And there is a rodet problem, of course. But this is just DCA, I've heard Horror stories from the Land!
