What IS this?

Not sure which forum to post this question in, but hoping someone here will recognize this problem.

There is a kind of web embedded with what looks like wood dust particles, located along the wood frame that surrounds my brick fireplace. I can wipe it away, no problem. In fact I've done that before, but it eventually shows up again.

What is causing it? I don't see any insects in or around it. Is it a sign of termites or wood/carpenter ants or what? If you CAN identify it, any suggestions for what to do?

I've seen this, as well...but don't know what it is. This post will bump your question back to the top so that others may see it, and hopefully recognize it.
