Bugs in Montauk Daisy
I have a Montauk Daisy that needs to be divided. Today, I dug it up to do just that. Much to my surprise, there seems to be an infestation of white bugs. While I have never seen a termite, it looks like some pictures I have seen. The bush has always looked good and produced flowers. This now amazes me sense it seems that inner core of all the stems are brown, and the roots are full of these bugs.
Now, my question, should I just put this whole root mass in a fire? Does a certain bug and Montauk Daisy have a symbiotic relationship?
Thanks for any help.
