  When you see a nest of ants like that, do you know how to tell which one is the queen?
There will normally be several queens which you can easily identify by their size and color.

I milled a few big cedars that had a whack of ants and a little bird stayed right with me till they were gone.I enjoyed his company.

Now that's interesting .Along a few years back I tripped a 100 foot ash in the woods which I first topped because of three nice walnuts I didn't want to harm with the fall .

So they I was 65 feet in the air in a bucket truck blowing about 30 feet out of the top and cut into a colony of biting ants,nasty little rascals .It wasn't like I could go any place except jump out .I'm some dumb not plum dumb .

So ant bitten from the ordeal I felled the spar and danged if the bottom didn't have a colony of big black carpenter ants .Now I would not have thought two different species of ants would be in the same tree.

The reason they hide in cedars is because they think that is the last place you will look for them.
And, they are usually right.
