I got these photos from my wife who is an independent claims adjuster.

Owners had siding that was bulging so they removed it and here you go. There were two water sources discovered. One being the grab rails inside the shower. The other a leaking hose bib. One shot shows the little critters. Are they termites?

They are smaller than what I have seen, but are otherwise ant like.

On a similar note, a friend called me a couple weeks ago regarding a bunch of tiny ants falling from his ceiling. There also seemed to be thousands out behind his siding. He was a biologist for CALTRANS prior to retiring. I recommended a pest guy who confirmed they were not termites, but didn't know what they were. Finally found out they were Booklice, also called psocids. Pretty much harmless. Now they are all gone for some reason.
