|Caterpillars can be controlled with a product called Bt (bacillus thuringensis). It is sold as Dipel or Thuricide in garden centers and it targets only caterpillars. Use according to label directions. Caterpillars can be the larvae of butterflies and of moths so you'll want to use it with caution. Grubs can be controlled with Grubex or with Bayer Advanced Season Long Grub Control. If you see grubs in the garden or lawn now, you can use the product now. Termites are attracted to moist soil and while they may migrate towards flower gardens because of the moisture, they prefer to live in wooden fences or wooden structures. Hope this answers all your questions.
