Glad to help. And I will put it on the CA page on the next update. Thanks for the tip.

As far as "how cold" is concerned, just cold enough so that most of the displaced ants will perish quickly. When the nights get close to freezing, I would guess.

BTW, my brother just took down a large infested tree last weekend and asked me the same thing. I told him to cut it down and cart it away. He has an old pickup and no fireplace. Actually, what he did was stack it at the curb and the next morning it was all gone, ants and all!
