Wood chip mulch won't necessarily attract termites. Even so, it is a good idea to rake the mulch periodically to annoy any critters that might be trying to make a home within the mulch. Just rake it around a little to incorporate some air. As mulch begins to decompose it will give off some heat - most termites won't like that. Best wishes with your garden!
