termites-how to resolve with least harm to wildlife?
DH was digging up a new planting that wasn't doing well to put in a shadier place, and came across an enormous number of termites about 4 feet from the foundation of our house which is wooden.
Don't see how we can just ignore this, but we also don't want to harm the birds, chipmunks, rabbits, dragonflies, lightning bugs, bees, butterflies and other visitors to our yard. Any suggestions of what would be effective and do the least harm to them? I came across one posting on GardenWeb saying the termite baits just attracted more termites.
I'm posting here since I think you'll understand the concerns we have besides just getting rid of the termites.
Thanks. -- Lori
