Looks mighty suspicious!  We are lucky that Virginia Tech has a great pest ID 
service. I suspect reaching out the University of Florida Entomology department 
might get you a fast response from a depth of knowledge about regional pests.
Good Luck!

Hi All,

We had a rainstorm last night and some water intrusion on one of the wooden 
windowsills of our historic house. The water intrusion may be unrelated but it 
led to the discovery of a small mound of dirt (?) crawling with small grey 
insects. I've attached a couple photos but I don't know that these are clear 
enough for identification, I will try to collect a couple of the insects and 
get them under the microscope later today.

Any ideas what this might be? Could they be wood boring insects? Any 
recommendations on how to proceed?

Many thanks in advance for you thoughts and guidance!
