Help! I have been an organic gardener for a number of years and a subscriber to DDD for several, but didn't get the beneficial nematodes or sand barriers installed before the termites invaded. The last couple of years my time has been totally consumed with my regular job and trying to build a new company part-time, so my garden is full of organically stimulated weeds. I use a landscape company for cutting grass so the landscape doesn't get me a fine from the city.
I have been using one of the DDD advertisers for my pest control for a couple of years and have been very pleased with their work. Last month they discovered an active termite infestation. Their advertising says they use organic pest and termite control. The termite treatment proposal they gave me says they use Termidor SC Termiticide/Insecticide, and the literature on that says it is toxic to birds, fish, and aquatic invertebrates. To me that says it is definitely not an organic treatment.
Does anyone know of a treatment for active termite infestations that is organic? Or am I misunderstanding the information on this chemical termiticide?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
