That won't hurt a thing for using it to cook with if the wood is still dry and sound-I use bug-hole wood all the time and there is absolutely no difference. If it was actually termites, that would usually indicate that the wood has stayed wet and started to get soft and rot. In that case, I wouldn't use it.
^^^^This. It also could be carpenter ants. I use bug hole wood all the time.
