Yesterday I cut up part of a Black Locust that had a pretty large Colony of Carpenter Ants living inside. To try to prevent the ants from moving into my wood piles, I split the infested parts pretty small, and scattered them around the lawn, hoping the ants would get lost. This morning, a Pileated Woodpecker - the really large, crow-sized woodpecker that makes large, oval holes in trees looking for Carpenter Ants - was down at the woodpile picking at the chopping block and some of the scattered splits. I know the chopping block was covered in dead Carpenter Ants, and I hope he got a bunch of the live ones, too. I don't have Wild Turkeys in the yard, but maybe the woodpecker will do the job.
