They've got rubber mulch made from recycled tires. We use mostly cyprus mulch and have never had a problem with termites and it's all over near our house. We live in Georgia.....

I read somewhere that cedar mulch repels termites. I am not sure how true it is. We used cocoa shell mulch one year, the only time we used mulch, and never had any termite problems. Only use that if you don't have a dog though. It is toxic to dogs if they eat it and they might because it smells like chocolate.
