Termites will not bother bulbs since they do not contain woody cellulose. They will nest in the soil but they will not eat the bulbs. You can prevent them with many different things that you already likely have in your home. This collection of articles will give you some ideas: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic

As for the fungicide. Any dustable fungicide will be fine, but I prefer wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime together. This will keep the soil conditioned, and prevent fungal infections.
