Fire ants are everyone’s responsibility. The super pest is like any other pest that landowners and tenants deal with on their properties.
Under the Biosecurity Act 2014, everyone, is required to check their property for fire ants and report any suspect nests within 24 hours.
After reporting, you can:
If you do wish to take control of the fire ants on your property, please indicate your intention to do so in the ‘comment’ field when you submit your online report. The program will still respond in high risk situations or if the landowner or tenant is unable to treat. This treatment will be conducted within 12 business days, and often sooner.
Thank you for checking your property and reporting suspect ants.
Your valuable contribution will assist in the eradication of these invasive ants.
