Insect Locator Map - Dead Tree

Under loose bark, in logs and stumps: Look for termites, ants and beetles, particularly bark beetles and wood boring beetles. The Florida woods cockroach is also very common in dead trees.

Use a trowel (small shovel) or other pointed utensil to remove bark from the tree. The type of organisms at a certain log or stump change depending on how long the tree has been dead.
