I'm at a loss. I'm building a room in our basement and tonight
I found a pile of sand around one stud spilling onto the floor ???
Now this was not there 2 weeks ago when I was pulling some electric.
My neighbor who was helping me frame a door tonight said he finds this
around his walls at certain spots sometimes but never that much so quick.
We have been here 7yrs now and I never saw this before. The basement
was finished when bought the house but I gutted it due to termites.
The funny part is it seems to be coming up through the floor, its dry and very
I searched but I'm coming up with nothing. Does anybody know what is going on
More termites. Those are the cement eating variery. Your concrete
floor is probably infested with termites. Remove the floor,
foundation, and all concrete or cement block walls. If you don't,
your house will collapse in a few years.
vacuumn and ant spray area....
keep close watch for future activity, have home checked for termites

No termites I have been keeping a eye out for them.
Walter, can you actually see the ants? I looked through the pile but saw no bugs
If they are ants, you should see ants around. If termites, you should
probe the adjacent wood to see if they have tunneled into it. It is
possible you brought more termites in new wood from yard. Look at the
stuff under magnifying lens - it should look more geometric than sand if
it is from termites.
