Through the tiny cracks and crevices. As we age termites become invisible they also swarm ever spring and fly off to greener pastures. You won’t know you have termites till the chewed up the interior wall planks and seek path too moisture or waste dumping.

Now you ask why would block and stucco concrete slab need protected? Termites are so tiny they can still migrate up through cracks and crevices to wood in the frame or attic and the flying swarm can attack through attic venting screens. the changes are lower in concrete or block house there still very small chance they can get to wood. Wooden frame house percentage lot higher due to wood stud frame construction. Ever turn over old piece of wood lying in yard on dirt? Termites most likely have eaten the underside up.
