Hello,

Within the last two months this creeping crud has appeared several times next to my front door. It grows very quickly. Also it is very crusty and crumbles when I wipe it off. Last week, I also found it growing in my garage. It seems strange how it grows straight up in a thin somewhat twisting line. It doesn't look like any pictures of mold that I have ever seen but I can't imagine what else it would be. Thanks, in advance, for any knowledge you might be able to share.

Looks like (termite tunnels) to me. Google that and select images and tell us if it looks the same.

Wow - you're absolutely right. Obviously, I'm going to have to get moving on this. Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.

YW, some of our members further south can weigh in on the proper treatment, but if they are moving that far up into the structure along with treatment I would get someone to look at the structure below.
