You read that right. I have a small veg. garden in the backyard that actually has done much better than expected. I've never been able to grown corn and not have worms get to it before I did until this year. However, after pulling ever ear that was still good today, I pulled every corn stalk out of the ground. Each ones stalk at the ground was infested with termites and several stalks they had gutted up to as far as 1'. They are also taking out sunflower plants, the latest one being about 4' tall with blooms just opening. I also pulled out what's left of my yellow squash plants after they buried us in absolutly beautiful squash until the squash bores finally got to them, but when I pulled them out, I also found termites at the ground, along with ants that seemed to have liked what was left of the spongy plant stems. I've never heard of such a thing so naturally I'm worried about everything else. I have cucumbers that are absolutly taking over, okra that is just coming in doing great, and a few pepper plants including a habanero that's really looking great right now and has it's first 2 peppers. I also have a monster grape tomato plant that's yielding 15-20 great tomatos a day now. I haven't used anything on the garden except some Mirical Grow when the plants were very small. No pesticides at all. Is there something I can do to get rid of the termites without the chance of getting anything in/on the plants? It also seems as these must be Formosan since they are eating healthy, semi woody plants. This is the first time to have a garden in this spot in about 7-8 years and for the last few years, it's had some old RR ties stacked up in it, one of which I noticed some termites in when I got rid of them. They were installed in our landscape by the original owner of the house so they'd been around for 12-14 years. HELP! I don't want to share my small crop with these ^%&#*@ termites!!
