IMO, I hate Pine Straw. Hey! it's Tree Pooooo. or Tree Hair, your choice

I use Chips/Bark around the flower beds and home. Yes, in GA if you use any bark around the foundation you better spray on a bi-monthly basis. It is critter city down here.

I think Pine straw is Ugly and with the GA humidity you get that pretty black pine puke on it after a while. Oh! Peachy.

I haul Pine Straw as far away as possible.

Both straw and bark are fine. Termites are everywhere in the south. Have your house inspected annually and keep all materials, including dirt, away from any wood on your house.

Don't use cypress mulch under any circumstance. It's not a waste product as pine bark or straw is. Seems folks just grind up cypress trees whole when clearing wetlands. Not good.

On some home show they showed it once and I think they said it was around $20.00 a bag (as opposed to around $4-5 a bag for regular mulch). So yeah, it's more expensive but by the bag in mulch form it's not as much so as the decorative stuff you buy for homes.

If it works as stated, then I would think you could mix it 50/50 with regular mulch and it would keep bugs away too though.
