How do I get rid of ants and termites?

Poorva J added on February 1, 2019 | Answered

A few days ago I saw termites and ants in one of my pots. I tried getting rid of them by putting turmeric powder on top of the soil (read it online), but they are moving from pot to pot. They have made holes in the soil. How do I get rid of them? They are spreading in all of my pots. Please help. Thank you.

    Termites should not be an issue unless they have wood or a wood substance to eat.
