The Q&A Archives: Deterring Termites

Question: We have alot of termites in the soil, but I'd like to form some raised beds out of redwood and wondered what you would recommend as a treatment. Dan Concord, CA

Answer: I assume that any wood preservative such as Cuprinol would also deter termites from boring into the wood. You may have to treat the wood annually to keep them away. Good luck with your garden..
