Here is a suggestion to everyone concerned about termite damage to wood.

The old adage:

Q: What kind of wood is not prone to termites?

A: None.

Every type of wood is prone to termites,unless you decide to use vinyl or composite,which could be very costly,so if your looking to budget and still want to use a particular wood for exterior,incl: Pine/Redwood/Cedar/Mahogany/Spruce/Hemfir,etc....a termite repellant needs to be applied to wood to extend the life of it.

I currently use Greens clear coat termite/water repellant
