The Termite Axe is the first tier 3 tool you can earn in Grounded. To craft this tier 3 Axe, which can double as a chopping weapon, you must seek out termites. These critters are tough to deal with, but just a few of them will get you what you need. Tough Gunk will drop from any high-level creature in the upper yard near the shed. This location is also where you can find the termite home base. The red area, pictured below, is near the shed and will contain all the creatures you need to hunt.
