Biosecurity Queensland taking the sting out of summer

Biosecurity Queensland is conducting fire ant bait treatment in high-risk areas across South East Queensland, with key risk areas receiving two or three rounds of bait treatment between September 2016 and May 2017.

If you live or work in the treatment area you will receive—or will have already received—notification that the fire ant program may require access to your property to spread fire ant bait over lawns, garden beds and open areas. The bait used is targeted to fire ants and is harmless to people and pets.

By working together we have the best chance of eradicating this terrible invasive ant species.

o find out if your suburb is in the treatment program area, to report fire ants or for more information, visit the fire ant website or call Biosecurity Queensland on 13 25 23.
