Maranatha Pine Tree Ant job

A house in the Tuolumne City area had a long-term infestation of pine tree ants, Liometopum luctuosum. Native to the area, these ants like to nest in pine trees. In this case, some wall studs worked just fine. Photos by Jon Shattuck. Video by the home owner.

The images show the wall studs after our repair crew opened the wall.
