Sawdust as the byproduct of work done can symbolise the need to look into the small details or as a reminder that a "job isn't "done" until the clean up in complete.

As the byproduct of insect infestation or decay from within can symbolise the need to be sure of your foundations. Check into the things you build your life upon - marriage, job, faith etc. by sure they are all in good repair.
