18 inches on centre...


Ants build homes just like people do. Sort of.

Holy cow! That's fascinating, and may be one for the books. Have you seen it documented elsewhere?

Dang it, WM said the same thing, Holey Ant-a-moley! Steph would love the math of it....

Nah, I made it up. I did think it was cool though, that the woodpecker holes are equally spaced down the trunk. I'll check for more trees with the same hole pattern - I know of at least 2 other trees with the same bug condo deal. There might be some distance between nests - I wish that distance was further from my timberframe house, in any case.
