Asked July 18, 2019, 9:08 PM EDT

How can I get rid of the ants inside the willow tree? I would prefer a simple and easy way such as a pesticide. What do you suggest?

Of the pesticides available to homeowners malathion or a pyrethroid are the best options. A can of hornet and wasp killer would be very effective. Spray the openings that the ants use to enter the tree and reapply the material several times until the ants are gone. If the ants have a nest inside the tree you will have to reapply several times
