Who did this?

Recommended Posts

The debris looks like it might contain some pupal cases from ants, but probably not carpenter ants. Probably some nondescript little ants; the kind that people call "sugar ants." 

The first culprit is some kind of rove beetle. Possibly the one romantically called the devil's coachman. The other is just a garden variety beetle. No idea what kind, but not one of the wood borers. 

I'd just vacuum up the debris, and sprinkle a little boric acid on the perimeter of the slab before installing the new carpet.
