Termites in 5-1-1
I just moved my two bird of paradise plants outside today so they could enjoy the sun and balmy temps. In the saucers, under the containers, there was what looked like fine, brown sand. On closer inspection I found termites running around in the saucers. The plants stay outside nine months of the year sitting on shredded pine mulch, so I'm sure that's where they came from. My question is, will the termites damage the plants during the next two months before I repot them? I'm pretty sure they don't eat healthy roots but I'd like some other opinions.
