Termites ...were discovered living in the flowerpots and some of the buckets our plants are growing in...there are termites, yet we don't have termites infesting our house, according to the monthly pest inspectors. And we surely DON'T want to be raising our own homegrown ones!
We're planning on using raised beds extensively, too, when we move...to raise many of our main crops. They'll be amended regularly with compost and lots of organic material, similar to what's in our current garden-'o-buckets.
Has anyone ever had any problems with termites in your pots, compost, or raised beds? Or your garden at all, for that matter?
We're not sure quite what to do at this point, and using pesticides is not an alternative we want to consider at this point...
