Answer

No.

Work Step by Step

In the absence of dissipative forces, the energy of a wave is conserved. This energy is not concentrated at one point; It exists throughout the string. The kinetic energy of the string particles “at the nodes” is zero, but the total energy of each of the other particles in the string is nonzero. Energy is not destroyed.
