Looks like it. Look closely in the "frass". Oftentimes, there are ant body parts, which would confirm carpenter ants. Looks like you're in Massachusetts, so drywood termites are definitely out. Maybe you guys have subterranean termites, but this isn't their evidence.

This looks like an infestation. Going forward, I suggest not using insecticide in this type of situation as you're likely to kill only those insects that come in contact. I believe you're better served by using bait that could be taken back to the nest for a far better impact.
