If you have termites in your garden soil and are wondering whether or not it's okay to leave them there, then let me start by saying that these little critters can be very harmful to plants. Termites are a type of pest that live underground and eat away at wood, including anything made from wood such as furniture and fences. The best way to keep them from eating your home is by making sure that it does not contain any type of wood material or by keeping it sealed with caulking or another sealant. You can buy pellets of bait that contain poison that is safe for pets, children and other animals but deadly to termites. The bait lures the termites out of their holes so they can eat it; this will eventually kill them off completely!
You may be tempted to leave the termites in your garden and let them do their thing. After all, they're eating wood that you don't need anymore and turning it into soil nutrients. But there are several reasons why this is not a good idea:
If you can't get rid of them quickly, they will spread to other areas. Termites are not good for the soil and can spread disease to other plants. They will eat away at wood and your home.
If you want to ensure that your plants are not eaten by termites (or other pests), then you will need to take some action before they become too much of a problem.
The best thing to do is get rid of the termites as soon as possible so they cannot spread further into your garden or lawn area.
Termites are a problem in gardens and can eat away at wood, including furniture and fences. The best way to keep them from eating your home is by making sure that it does not contain any type of wood material, such as wooden beams or posts on your deck or patio area.
Termites are social insects that live in colonies underground. They feed on wood, which contains cellulose. Termites digest cellulose and then excrete it as waste, known as frass.
Frass is a brown powdery substance that can be found at the base of a termite colony or entering holes in drywall or floorboards. It may also appear as piles of fine particles clinging to walls and windowsills where you might see an active nest nearby.

Termites can live in wood, but they don't have to eat wood to survive. They eat other things too (like dead plants), but if there are no dead plants around and you don't want them eating your furniture, then make sure all of that stuff is out of reach!
Bait is a poison that the termites eat. It's safe for pets, children and other animals but deadly to termites. You can buy pellets of bait that contain poison that is safe for pets, children and other animals but deadly to termites.
The poison used in this type of bait is called fipronil. When you put it out in your garden soil, it will last one year or more depending on how much rain has fallen during that time period. The best way to use this type of product is by mixing it into the top 6 inches (15cm) of soil where there are known termite activity problems before planting any new plants or trees so they aren't harmed by ingesting any toxic materials while trying grow roots deep into their new home!
Bait is often used to control termites. It's convenient because you don't have to worry about treating the whole yard and can use it in places where you don't want to use pesticides. The bait lures the termites out of their holes so they can eat it, then contains a poison that kills them. The dead termites decompose into nutrients for your soil, which helps plants grow better!
While it's true that termites can help break down plant matter and make nutrients available to plants, they also excrete a waste product called frass. This is what you see as the piles of sawdust-like material around your home. If you have a large colony in your yard, this can be quite an eyesore and can attract pests like ants or roaches who will feed on it.
Additionally, because termites live in soil that has been damaged by water or other elements (such as tree roots), they thrive on rotting wood--and they may even damage wooden structures if they're not treated regularly with insecticides!
Termites can be an overwhelming pest to deal with. They are very destructive and will eat away at anything made out of wood, including your home or garden. If you do not want to use pesticides or other chemicals in order to get rid of them then there are some natural methods that work well such as using plant extracts or other natural substances found around the house like lemon juice or dish soap solution.
