That is fascinating to say the least. I would love to know what paint is on that wall. Also did you fall near this wall with juice in your hand? I really cannot see any real reason as to why they are doing that. Is there paint dust at the base of the wall or are they literally eating the wall?

some ants eat walls so they can make a nest, for example carpenter ants "eat" or gnaw at there wooden walls to make a nest, fire ants have also been known to chew on vinyl tubing, maybe that's why,

I know this is an old topic but maybe if anyone else is confused this could help.
