Termites are attracted to any source of wood containing cellulose, which is why they’re just as likely to infest your garden or yard as they are your home. Subterranean termites and agricultural termites are the species most likely to infest your yard, while drywood termites can infest trees and other landscaping not in contact with soil.

Preventing termites in your garden and yard requires many the same methods as preventing them from infesting your home, including eliminating excess moisture, piles of wood, and properly applying preventative treatment.

What Attracts Termites to My Yard?

Your yard or garden can be just as if not more appealing than your home when termites are searching for their source of food to feed on. Some reasons why you may get termites in your yard include:

  • Stacks of firewood or lumber are kept near the home. The rule of thumb is to never let your firewood touch the soil in your yard, and to instead store it several inches above the ground.
  • Tree roots, dead trees, or decaying stumps are left unattended. Termites find these to be the ideal environment, so removing them promptly is of the essence.
  • Standing water or poor drainage issues are ignored. The moist, wet environment is extremely suited for termites. Make sure to always fix any moisture or drainage issues you may have.
  • Your deck or patio is not properly taken care of. Letting your outdoor space suffer from decay or rot is an easy way to attract termites. Make sure to apply treatment and, if possible, have support beams touching concrete rather than dirt.

How Do I Treat My Lawn and Garden for Termites?

No one wants to use chemical-laden products in their garden to ward off pests. Thankfully, there are a number of more eco-friendly ways to protect your yard from termites. Some of the natural ways to prevent termites include orange oil, cardboard traps, diatomaceous earth, nematodes, boric acid, and more.
