Worms under wood floor

I have engineered wood floor installed over slab floor about 4 years ago. recently i found some areas where the wood became darker and swollen. when i opened one area, i found white little worms, don't know what are they, and how to resolve the problem, a wood floor installer concluded the is no leak under the concrete, and these are not termites.
can you help?
thanks very much

Worms under wood floor

Most worms are not white; may not be termites but google termite and select images. You'll quickly see if they are or not. Also, could take some to a pest control place who likely can tell you quickly.
