Pine Tree Ants nesting in styrofoam packing material
A resident in Columbia Mobile Park had a storage shed adjacent to her home, and adjacent to the shed was a large ponderosa pine. There was a toaster oven box, containing the packing styrofoam, still in it.
Pine tree ants had moved a small satellite colony into the box, and were excavating a nesting site in the styrofoam block. Photos below.
