Blackened Floorboards Causes Concern About Insect Eggs

“Can you help me to identify if there is an issue with my wood floors?” asks Sandra in her submission. “I noticed some time ago that my hardwood floors were starting to get blackened areas but I figured it was due to age as the home is over 200 years old. However they recently seem to be getting dark spots faster than I would expect and now there is more spacing between boards than before. I am also noticing lots of stuff In the spaces although I vacuum more than just regularly! The pictures included are of the floors and the stuff in them which I am really hoping is not some sort of insect egg. Any advice would be appreciated.”
