Here is a photo of a nearby windowsill: photo3

  • It is difficult to say from the photo. But is mayfly season in the Northeast. – mikes Apr 30 '17 at 21:04
  • Is there an additional photo that would help? This is in the interior, by the way. We are in southern CT. – Ken Feyl Apr 30 '17 at 21:12
  • I added a new photo. Let me know if you have any insights. – Ken Feyl May 1 '17 at 0:52
  • Just added another photo of a nearby windowsill. What could this be? – Ken Feyl May 1 '17 at 2:49
  • All I can see looks like wood debris carpenter ants and termites can cause damage that can cause this kind of mess. – Ed Beal May 1 '17 at 13:04
