In my yard, once the stump is dead, termites, beetle larvae, and assorted fungi will take care of that in a couple of years.

Is there something I can put on them to kill them?   I eventually want to use the soil so don't want to put anything on it that will render the soil useless. 

My guess is that you can apply most any herbicide directly to the open wound on the stump, and use a low enough dose that you won't poison the nearby soil.
