I am a proffesional Builder of some 20 years. The only real sure way to erradicate the problem is to replace the boards, However it be possible to screw the boards down from the top, sink the screws far enough to be able to plug the holes with matching timber pellets, so that the repair is 'invisible'. It sounds as if the timber was not properly treated during the installation. So ensure that once the work is completed, a good timber preservative is applied.
