Sand around baseboards

When you see sand or dirt show up around baseboards on your floor and the walls are exterior walls you may have a moisture problem. Particularly in wood frame houses but even cement block houses you may have water or moisture penetrating between the bottom of your wall and your slab. Ants will seek moisture and cavities to build nests and possibly feed off of building materials in your house. The dark wet space of  your wall cavity is ideal for them.

The dirt and sand you may see or activity of ants may be an indication of a bigger problem call a local waterproofing contractor and have it inspected.
