Is this made by termites?


Found this between two walls, but did not see any live creatures. What insect makes this?

Sure looks like mud tunnels from termites to me.
Feel it, does it feel like mud? Or saw dust?
Time to call an exterminator.
Do not try some home fix on this one.
No spraying with bug spray will not fix the real problum.
Go back and add where you live to your profile. Sure helps when ansewering questions.

Since it is just photos, it is hard to be sure. The debris on the second photo looks more like carpenter ants to me. If the vertical stuff is hard, like clay, then it is most likely termites.

Goldencrow, you found active termites and chose not to get a full real termite treatment

That mistake can cost you big time in the future!

I saw swarms around my neighbors house 1 year after his tent.

But I do agree with you!
