The term decompiculture is a neologism coined by forestry professor Timothy Myles of the Urban Entomology Program at the University of Toronto and refers to how decomposing organisms, like termites, could be grown or cultured for a variety of uses.

Myles proposes that people could live in symbiosis with termites by utilizing them in landfills to decompose waste, to improve soils by composting materials, to detoxify hazardous substances, and to produce biomass for animal feed and production of biochemicals. He speculates that decompiculture could eventually become a new biological field that could have significant and important impacts on both humans and termites.
