Cool termite damaged wood when to replace?

hi we recently discoverd that we have termites worker termites coming up thru the foundation which is a raised 2 foot concrete foundation . i would like to find out if i need to replace all termite damaged studs etc.. even if some are just appear to surface gnawing trails. we want to do it right . we are replacing the definite bad damaged studs and treating the new stuff . i was wondering if i couldnt just treat some of the not so badly damaged wood ?

You need to primarily treat the ground where the termites are coming from, and you also can treat the wood where you see minimal surface damage.
You do not have to replace any wood that has only light surface damage. Just the things that have lost their structural integrity.
Good Luck!
