The current estimated wait for treatment is up to 10 business days. High risk cases such as public safety and animal health will be prioritised.
Under the Biosecurity Act 2014, you are required to report fire ants to the National Red Imported Fire Ant Eradication Program within 24 hours of detection. However, if you cannot or do not want to wait for program staff to treat, self-management options are available. If you do wish to self-manage, please indicate your intention to do so in the ‘comment’ field when you submit your online report.
Thank you for checking your property and reporting suspect ants.
Your valuable contribution will assist in the eradication of these invasive ants.
