We have a small colony of termites that invaded our woodpile recently. However, on the other side of the pile a colony of ants has sprung up. My questions are: 1. Are termites and ants enemys? Should I let 'em duke it out then get the winner? :) 2. What is a natural deterrent to termites, as opposed to using chemicals? 3. How are they affected by cold weather? (It gets below freezing for about 6 hours each night in the winter where I am) BTW, these termites look small & white-ish in color. Not much bigger than the regular red ants.
