The Q&A Archives: mulch

Question: Is it true that red mulch brings termites?

Answer: I'm not aware of any study done that indicates red mulch might encourage termites. I don't think there is a color that will attract them, but they do like cool, dark places so if you have mulch near the foundation of your home you might want to rake it around periodically to deter insect pests.
