While not a threat to tree health, these insects can threaten a tree’s structure. Carpenter ants will tunnel through dead wood, entering through old wounds and cracks.

The ants may not be visible at all times, but the sawdust (frass) is usually the best indicator. Since they live inside the tree, they can be difficult to control, but the use of baits and gels can be very effective at reducing their colonies.
