Termites in my garden??
I was in my garden today (raised bed lined with cinder blocks) and I was digging in the holes of the cinder blocks (where I have put some topsoil so I can plant marigolds) to plant some seeds and I dug up what appeared to be termites, little clearish/yellowish larvae type things and others with wings. I went online to ID them and make sure they weren't just ant larvae. The pictures online look exactly what is living in my garden.
So now I am a bit freaked out, where did they come from and how do I remove them? Is this common? I am fairly new to gardening and am not a TN native. My husband and I recently purchased some topsoil and mulch from a local nursery and I dug through the top soil today and there are termites in there too. There is a lot of dead wood in the top soil we bought, so I'm assuming that's what they are eating.
Has anyone had this problem before? I'm really stressing out about it. Our house has a termite contract and they come out and check it once a year to make sure everything is ok and last year sprayed the base of the house with some sort of chemical to deter termites.
