Invasive ant battle goes national

Exotic invasive ants, including the dreaded red imported fire ant, are looming as the next major battleground in the fight against invasive species.

At the recent Agriculture Ministers’ Forum, Ministers agreed to the expansion of the National Red Imported Fire Ant Eradication Program in South East Queensland.
