If I evict termites from my fence, will they relocate to my house?

I have a split rail fence in my back yard that is in very sorry shape, and I'm planning on replacing it soon. However, I recently noticed that parts of the fence are being eaten by termites. I don't see any sign of termites around the house (although I'm not an expert). If I replace the fence and take away the termites' home, what's the risk that they will decide to take up residence in my house (or deck or trees)?

Secondary question: Should I get a home termite inspection anyway? I'm worried that the termite inspector will automatically try to upsell me and tell me that I have a definite problem whether I do or not, but then, I am very distrustful of salesmen.
