Lyn Terrace Apartments
My wife and I moved to Lyn Terrace 9 months ago. These single level garden-type apartments have been a welcome change from the 55 and older mobile home park from which we moved. The rents here are affordable with a fair charge for pets. Units are air conditioned as well as humidity controlled. We live in a 2 bedroom unit and our electric has averaged $106.50 per month. (my wife enjoys the washer and dryer) Here we meet a variety of neighbors to pick and choose from and, I suppose, we are picked or not chosen as well ! But seeing young people on their own for the first time, or families with young kids, or some residents off to work each day leaving behind some of us who are retired with only our pets make for a pretty nice neighborhood. Downsizing to an apartment community, for us, requires are certain kind of energy and skill. But learning the tried and tested guidelines has made it an enjoyable adjustment. Some neighbors, for one reason or another, find it a difficult way of life. But these are the same folks who because of a personal situation are here by necessity and not in an environment more to their taste--and are thus somewhat disgruntled. My wife enjoys flowers and our efforts to beautify our garden and lanai has been favorably accepted by the management. This community offers incentives for growing flowers in a personal garden and the common areas and gardens are exceptionally maintained by George and Charlotte, the on-sight managers, and their team. Management leads by example and even the reluctant few see the benefits of doing their fair share to keep our little neighborhood a nice place to live. Any maintenance problems I have seen and a few that we have experienced in our apartment have been quickly remedied. If you are looking for Shangri-La then keep on driving, but if you want a comfortable, quiet way of life you might be happy here.
Tips & Advices
Fumigation is dangerous to pets and humans. Liquid termicides, however, are safe to use around pets.
No. Because termite infestations are considered preventable, most home insurance policies do not cover treatments or damage.
It's best to treat an entire home to ensure the termite infestation is completely eliminated. Spot treating costs less, but increases the likelihood of missed colonies. In addition, spot treatments can make a home unattractive to future buyers.
The cost to eliminate termites varies depending on the method. Bait costs between $150-$300, while fumigation costs $1,300-$2,500. Heat treatment costs around $1 per square foot, so a 2,500 square-foot home would cost $2,500.
The length of time depends on the process used:
  • Fumigation takes approximately five days. The termites die quickly, but homeowners must remain out of the house until the chemicals clear.
  • Bait exterminations can take months to destroy an entire colony. The bait kills termites during the molting process. If an insect eats the bait and does not molt, it is unaffected.
  • Heat extermination takes approximately eight hours and is environmentally friendly. This process heats the home to 150 degrees F.
