dry wood termite treatments?

While clearing out a portion of my lot that is at the bottom of a slope, I
came across some sections of a tree trunk that had been sawed and stacked
in a row. The sections are about 2 feet high and as wide and they sit on
the other side of a wire fence that was covered with blackberry vines.
Blackberry vines had covered the fence and the trunk sections until I
cleared them out; they are in my neighbor's lot which is also covered with blackberry vines, but not as much as my lot had been.

I was at the bottom of the slope today right before
sunset and was surprised to see two swarms of dry wood termites come out
of two different stacks of the trunk sections. I'd like to know what is the best way to deal with these things (or, rather, I should say how should my neighbor deal with them since they are on his property). What sort of treatment should be used and is it necessary to spray the area around the stacked trunk sections?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Termiticides are available for use on termites. Make sure you treat the colonies you have discovered. Inspect stumps and treat as well. Ideally, the stacks of wood should be moved off the property.
