They aren't eating it, they're removing it. It's an old building and it's to be expected. As a matter of fact, our own building is 135 years old and we have a brick foundation with the very same problem. I don't worry about it, you shouldn't either.
However, if you want it treated, you should have an exterminator spray the outside foundation with Termidor, it's an outside treatment only. Although I have to tell you, I haven't treated the outside of our building and I can get the exterminator for FREE.....
The best cure, of course, is to have it tuckpointed, which neither of us can afford, what with all that's going on today!
Don't worry about it.
