Wood Worms?

I just noticed some little creatures living in my firewood pile.  They look
like tiny worms - no more than 1/2 inch in length - and they've bored little
holes in the pieces of wood.  Someone told me they may be "wood worms", but
I've never heard of such a thing.

Does anyone know anything about the existence of wood worms?  Is there a
product on the market that will kill them without making my firewood toxic
when it burns?  Will the upcoming cold weather and frost kill them?  Any
insights would be appreciated.
