My dd saw this just today in the hallway. I opened the closet to find more. It was definitely NOT there yesterday. What is it?? I killed it with Raid, whatever it is, but I'm so totally grossed out.

These are the best pics I could get. My husband is asleep because he works weird shifts, and I wasn't going to wake him. Any info you have is very useful. Thanks in advance. Also, no, it's definitely not actually rice.

It looks like the ants were trying to build a nest.

I have no clue, but I have seen it in many mailboxes.  I'm grossed out by it, too.

While you were too busy being so judgemental of others, you forgot to lock your closet door~~and all the skeletons fell out!!  OOPS!!

You think those might be ant eggs? Can ants lay eggs that many so quickly?

Absolutely! Hubby is on pest duty as soon as he wakes up. The other trap was from a mouse we found about 6 months ago. We caught it and haven't had any other problems with them, but we're keeping the traps...just in case.

 The only thing I can think of would be termites, do some have wings.

It looks like an ant colony is ether moving in or moving out.  They look like ant eggs.
