If termites just fed on wood or wood products then termites would not be as big of an issue as they are.

However, termites also eat many other materials including: plastics, paint, silicone adhesives, paper, cloth, and carpets.

The aftermath of an infestation of termites is ultimately property damage in varying degrees of severity.
