Hello, John,

It's me again from Mississippi. I just found a hole in my dry wall. I don't think it's termites because it doesn't look like the dry wall damage I've had before. And the place is vertical instead of horizontal about the width of an eraser. I poked it with a screwdriver and it's dry as a bone. There are other tiny little pin pricks on the wall, but the wall is still hard and the paper is not soft or wet. My power switch box was right under the area so I took that off to see if I could see anything. The only thing I found was a powdery substance, kinda like it had been ground up or something. No signs of any insects or fecal matter at all. I put the stuff I found in a sealed sandwich bag. This hole was not there a few weeks ago, because I primed and painted it myself. What do you think this is? As always, I appreciate your advice.
Thanks, D
