Strange substance showing up in humidor

Would anyone be able to tell me what this is? Looks and feels like corn meal. Can’t find any damage to the cigars, boxes, or humidor itself.

    Could be humidity beads, what are you using for humidity in the humidor?

    Using a cigar oasis humidifier with humidity beads. The substance is pretty far away from the unit though, humidor is 4’ w x 7’ h.

    Looks like Heartfelt beads to me, If not it’s the Corona Virus.

    It's plume, bro. Looks like that humidor is ready to be smoked.

    I have had beetles before... I don’t remember these little white things... I would scope out for holes in the sticks just in case?

    It's little pieces of your humidity beads, Daniel. Why would you have to ask, DZR? You're not much of a detective are you?

    It's frass. It could be from woodworms or possibly tobacco beetle larvae. I'm not an expert, but that's what I would say. After you clean the entire humidor, see if there's any wood damage.

    Cigars were made to be smoked, whiskey was made to be drank and women were made to be loved. The only thing I try to age is myself.

    But seriously, I didn't know that frass existed without it's companion element Sasa. This has just destroyed my world.

    I vote frass.

    May potentially be frass, from what I see online though it says it would be softer and more powdery if it was. The stuff in the humidor is harder, more like grains of sand. Haven’t totally removed all the boxes yet but can’t find any damage other than a couple missing wooden shelf pins. Not sure why bugs would only eat that type of wood, seems more likely they were missing to begin with.
