How to get rid of this?To get rid of pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

Dampwood termites, Termopsidea, are always associated with damp, decaying wood, usually in the form of fallen logs in the forest, but may sometimes be found in decaying wood in buildings or fences. They depend on the moisture in the tree and mostly have galleries in the softer growth rings of the tree. They do not form a large central colony but live in many small independent groups or colonies in the wood.

The distinction between ‘dampwood’ and ‘drywood’ termites is an area of much confusion. The term ‘dampwood termite’ is often reserved for the Termopsidea, however three genera in the family Kalotermitidae (NeotermesGlyptotermes and Ceratokalotermes) are considered dampwood termites.
