The National Fire ant Eradication Program have established an emergency response to assess the extent of the fire ant infestation and develop a treatment plan.

Eradication activities, including intensive treatment and surveillance will occur up to 5 km out from the detection site to protect the area and ensure no undetected fire ants remain.

The National Fire ant Eradication Program have treated these fire ant nests, but they need your help to make sure they've got every last one.
