I happen to have a couple of woodpeckers that are very industrious on a big old maple tree in my front yard. :)
The sugarwater that they get to flow will draw ants.
If it is a living tree
It's alive for now, but each year they do more damage.
I have a pair of piliated that only come in the winter. They usualy work on a tall dead maple stump in my yard ( same tree the norther flickers nested in last year). This year, they started on a living pine. I have no doubt that, given time, they will take it out.
I do get a lot of ants in the front yard. I have to throe down ant powder several times to keep them under control.
Aw...dont tell me that, will.
Try boric acid. It is much more benign. You can mix it with different things for different kinds of ants.
I'll check it out. If it works, I'll use it. My real issue is to make sure they stay out of my house. :)
Yes...buggers will find a way.

I just picked up a book "The Real Revolution" the global story of American Independence, by Marc Aronson.

Florida is stingy with its warm weather.
What are other sentient species from other planets like?
If we will ever decode our own DNA gene by gene?

If the hypothesis that there is an alternate dimension for every possible version of us is true.
If there will ever be a material that can replace decayed enamel and dentin, as well as be aesthetically pleasing and have no effect on the other teeth, bone matter or the organism as a whole.
