Person picking tomatoes and cucumbers from their vegetable garden

Do you love gardening? Do you enjoy growing your own fresh and healthy vegetables? If so, you need a plan against termites, pests that can significantly threaten your garden. Termites feed on wood and other plant materials. They can damage your garden by chewing through roots, tree bark, and the insides of fruit trees. They can weaken the structure of your house and cause costly repairs.

Termites can be hard to eliminate, especially outdoors, where they have plenty of food sources and hiding places. Drywood termites live above ground in dry wood. They do not need soil or moisture. Subterranean termites live in moist soil and build mud tubes to reach the wood. Both damage wood by feeding on cellulose. They differ in color, size, and fecal pellets.

Natural Termite Prevention Tips

You can do several things to keep termites out of your house and yard. Here are practical tips to get rid of termites naturally:

  • Maintain a tidy yard. Remove any dead or decaying wood, including firewood, fallen branches, and stumps. These can attract termites and provide them with food and shelter.
  • Trim plants away from the house. Ensure there is at least an 18-inch gap between the soil and any wood or siding on your house. This will prevent termites from accessing your house through plants or mulch.
  • Store firewood at a distance. If you use firewood for cooking or heating, keep it 5 inches off the ground and at least 20 feet from your house. Termites will find it more difficult to get to it and spread to your home as a result.
  • Use termite-resistant wood. If you build raised beds, trellises, or fences for your garden, use treated timber or wood naturally resistant to termites, such as cedar, redwood, or cypress.

Using these suggestions, you may lower your chance of termites in your garden and yard. They are not, however, impenetrable. Termites can still find ways to enter your property and cause damage. That is why you need professional help.
