    No it won't bring bugs. I suggested laying down sereral layers of newpaper first before you lay down the mulch because it will stop the weeds from growing through. Make sure there are at least 4 or 5 layers of each sheet. It works get and you don't have to buy those expensive weed covering sheets.

    Mulch is sterile. It gets very hot when being created and therefore everything dies. Termites come in swarms. In Ky they actually have termite swarms on the news to that people can take care of the problem or start to look for signs of termites. Different bugs like lose dirt but they are usually beneficial bugs so nothing to worry about.

    mulch usually has been treated, and you should have no trouble using it. there are all kinds of materials to use for mulch, so check with your local garden supply store for tips & advice.
