We've been noticing a brown covering of dirt on some of our trees. It's like a light coating, and we think it's ants, but not sure.
Ants are a problem here, several types cover our yard. What is best to get rid of these pests.

RE: pests

What kind of trees" And where in Texas?

It might be just dirt! Have you had much rain recently?

It might also be a mold or mildew, if you have had a lot of rain.

Ants are seldom pesty enough to be worth the trouble of killing them, unless it's fire ants.

What specific behaviors are causing the problem?
