Termites, crap!

I washed the boat and found termite droppings. I hate that!!! My boat is where the dry wood termites swarm several times a year and I constantly have to monitor for any sign of them. This infestation is in my flybridge side panel. I can pull the panel and replace it which is what I'll do.

I epoxy all end grain when I do wood replacement and also soak with CPES so I can't understand how they find a place to start eating.

I don't want to tent my boat just for a local problem but what do you do for termite prevention?
