Hi! Attached is a picture of a critter I found in some firewood I had delivered. What is it? Will it hatch a billion termites that will devour my house? Thank you!

It may be a round headed beetle larvae 9only found in dead trees), for more information see https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5343829.pdf
It is not a termite.
