Sully; This cracks me up! Now what would have you taking apart your teak deck? Thinking I've missed some maintenance item. Below from the web.

Teak is one of the most valuable timbers, "the king under the timbers", in ancient times considered as "a royal timber". Teak is world wide recognized for its durability and stability, The timber is immense stable, has a high oil content that works as "built-in" natural water repellent and is therefore virtually immune to rotting, fungi and harsh chemicals. Teak is one of the few timbers that can withstand the heat of the desert and will not readily catch fire.
Untreated teak can be left in the open for more than 30 years whilst becoming an attractive soft silver color. Teak is one of the timbers not susceptible to termite (white ants) attacks.
