Will mulch cause termites?
Mulch does not cause termites, but if termites are already present in an adjacent structure, it can give the insects a chance to tunnel in the mulch. The best way to prevent termites is to make sure that water drains away from the foundation and to have annual treatment by an exterminator. A proper chemical barrier will stop termites from entering the home.
Which mulch is best?
This mainly depends on the area where the mulch is to be applied and the type of plants to be mulched. Areas that are wet and poorly drained should use coarser or loose mulch such as pine nuggets, mini chips or colored mulch that will allow air movement. Dry, sandy areas should use the finer ground mulches such as triple-shredded pine and shredded hardwood bark because these mulches will retain moisture. Areas that have steep slopes or are wash areas should use shredded mulch.
How much mulch do I need?
Mulch should be applied 3 to 4 inches deep. For best results, re-apply once or twice per year.
