We have large, black ants devouring our pear trees from within. What product should I use?

We have used over the counter ant killers and nothing is working. Ants have eaten a HUGE CAVITY from the base of our pear tree up thru the center of the trunk. Now, they are starting on the next pear tree. We were told to get Talstar P, but have no idea which one of your many products we need to order.


You should not spray any edible vegetation such as pear trees with Talstar P. You should contact your local cooperative extension office for recommendations, as we are not sure what type of ant you are dealing with. The folks at the extension office are usually very well versed with local insects and what works best for them.
