Round Headed Borer Grub

Dear Rhonda,
This is the grub of a wood boring beetle, and we strongly suspect it is a Round Headed Borer Grub from the Long Horned Borer family Cerambycidae, but we cannot provide a species identification for you.

Thank you so much 🙂 I just went and looked at more pictures and info . Super happy they are not termites . I still feel a bit sad that many do probably die in the fire 😔
