Default Are these termite fecal pellets?

My wife found these little piles of black sandy things 5 days ago, 2 days ago and now today.
Are these termite pellets and is the tiny hole near the top made by termites?

Thanks very much!

Looks like Dry wood Termite frass. (poop)

Time to call the exterminator. It's not a DIY thing to fix and no just spraying with some spot spray bug killer will not work.

YEP. Black or salt-n-pepper . . . it is clearly the sign of termites. Get all over this.
