Does mulch attract termites?

FellowsMulch itself does not attract termites.  Termites prefer a cool, moist environment.  The purpose of mulch is to cool the ground and maintain soil moisture.  Mulch can create a suitable environment for termites that already exist in the soil, which can sometimes bring them to the surface and make termites noticeable.
