I did NOT know that coffee grounds will repel termites!!! Since I also have a termite issue (they are living in the garden soil and (I'm sure) the untreated sides of the raised beds) and they eat the stems of my plants and entire radishes, I guess I will increase the amount of coffee I drink!!!
Can you tell me if the flying termites are white? I know the ones who I find chewing my garden plants are white. But the flying insects I discovered several seasons ago (in May) had black bodies. I thought they were ants but maybe they were termites?
Do you have any idea how much coffee grounds I need to apply? A rough estimate would be helpful!
I do drench the soil with Neem oil and water mixed. It's a job to do it, but I think it has helped with the ants & termites. But the termites come back.
I do love the information I find on this site!
