I think that it is difficult to evaluate the termite damage risk in The Villages because all new homes are treated by the builder with a soil poison that is supposed to protect the home from subterranean termites for about 10 years. And, most homeowners retreat the house and maintain a termite contract on a continual basis indefinitely. So, the real question should not be "have you ever seen any termite damage?" But, "how much damage would you see if no termite treament was used at all"? Unfortunately, this is a question with no real answer.
