Well I admit I don't know anything about mulch. I am going to put some mulch under playground equipment at a daycare. They are concerned with insects (termites) if I use a wood mulch. It is about 30 ft from the daycare. So my question is which wood mulches are the most insect resistant. I always though something like cypress mulch would resist termites. So anything you can tell me about wood mulch would help me. There are several local companies that use ground up local wood mulch and color it but I don't want to go that way if there is any chance of termites. Tell me what you can. They have considered paying a lot of money for rubber type mulch that I don't think is necessary in this case.
