Termites are destroying my garden

Post  Love2plant on 7/21/2016, 6:49 am

Hi All
I have two gardens, 4x12, with loads of veggies and herbs. We built them with retaining wall bricks after realizing the wood only lasted a few years before rotting.
I also have termites. Yes, termites. I could not believe it when it was verified.
They have destroyed all our corn and kale. I am afraid to discover what they will destroy next.
The problem is I have kept this garden organic and I want it to stay that way. I also want the termites gone.
I applied some beneficial nematodes but it seems they did not help.
Is there anything I can do to get rid of them?

Hi Love2plant. Welcome from Atlanta, GA!

Not sure what to tell you on this one... I believe termites are cousins to ants, so maybe try things like cinnamon, peppermint, etc...
