Hello,

The photo was taken yesterday. We do not know if this is a pest, mold or fungus of some type and do not know how to take care of this. When cleaned up, it comes back in the same spot.

Any information and advice would be great.

Thanks.
Alex

Thanks for responding. There is very little sawdust. The “feathery” material above the carpet looks almost like insulation, but I don’t think it is. I have no idea what it is. When looking at Google Images, frass looks more like plain sawdust.

looks like polyester or polypropylene carpet. fuzz is unknown to me. do dry soil removal (vacuum) and clean. unless its a pest control situation you should be fine

Thank you for the response. I think it probably is a pest situation, likely carpenter ants, as suggested in the first reply as well. Thanks!
