The piles of dust you are seeing are probably from Powder Post Beetles. The best way to stop them is to apply a borate solution to the logs. Unfortunately, this has to be done on bare wood, so you would have to strip the house down. As for the carpenter ants, this means you have some wet, rotting logs or wood somewhere. If you can get this replaced it will stopthe ant activity. Bad part is most of this is expensive. Try contacting a local pest controller to see if they have any environmental friendly ways of stopping this.
