Bamboo and termites?
I have searched the flooring forum and see no reference to termites eating bamboo. I live in the Caribbean and would like to put in bamboo flooring. Bamboo grows here and the termites don't make nests in it but is that because they don't like eating it or it isn't substantial enough to support the nest?
The flooring forum doesn't address this issue. Does anyone gardening in the tropics have experience with using bamboo flooring and termites finding it appetizing? Termites love oak and pine and so far the only thing they don't eat is treated wood or a dark hardwood from South America? Any thoughts or experience appreciated?
Thanks in advance,
