Hey all, we not long bought a beautiful home with plenty of yard for gardens plus established 'pottager' garden. However! sadly we discovered one of our weeping peach trees eaten out by termites!...Big wind gusts brought down the tree....
Now we have pest control dude coming to inspect for yearly inspection and to treat termites.
Was wondering how many others have had termites in their gardens and how you treated them to avoid damaging plants and trees?

We've had them in the garage which is semi-attached to the house so we have a termite barrier around the house now and have had no problems for years.

We do have them down the back in a old tree stump which we leave alone ... we don't worry if they are eating that, then they are not in the house. We have never had them eating anything that wasn't already dead.
