Just wondering if we can put sawdust (from a tree we just cut down) in our compost bin even though we saw termites in the wood?

This article should help you with that: [1] If the termites no longer have anything to feed on, they will likely die or move elsewhere. The heat from the compost pile may also kill them, so this shouldn’t be a problem. If they do survive, it is unlikely they would cause any damage to your plants, as they typically only target unhealthy trees.
