I’d be more worried about powder-post beatles than termites. Termites usually go for a wood that still has sap in it. I doubt that there is any digestable sap left in this wood. The beatles, on the other hand, can survive for years. Leave a piece somewhere very clean, in a reasonable temperature, like maybe on concrete in a steel building, and see if any wood dust forms anywhere on the floor or around and on the wood. If it does in a couple weeks, you have insects.
