RE: Mulch by the house = termites - fact or fiction? (Follow-Up #1)

I've read and seen that native Cedar mulch is the best for repelling bugs. I have actually stayed away from the free mulches offered by the city in favor of buying Cedar. It really works well here. I don't have any mulch against my house and a gap between the plants and the house to I can keep debris down to a low and discourage all kinds of pests. They even recommend hooking vines to a trellis with a hook and eyebolt set up so you can carfully tilt the vine forward and clean out debris behind it,create and air pocket, and keep it from attaching directly to the house.
