If you can't figure out what it is, (sounds like termites or carpenter ants), then I would highly suggest to contact a local exterminator who will give you a free estimate. Let them diagnose what it is, and let them tell you what to do to control it. Ask lots of questions and get educated. Then make a decision if you want to have them do it, or you want to do it yourself.
Termite control can be tricky. Carpenter ant control is also difficult. Both require a bit of study and a plan of attack to successfully do it yourself.
If you have pictures you can send, it sometimes helps me diagnose from a long distance.
