Treatment by the program

The program is focused on eradicating fire ants from Australia.

We are focused on eradicating fire ants. To achieve this we are treating fire ants across a large area of South East Queensland, starting on the western boundary of the infestation area in the Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim, Somerset, Logan and Ipswich local government areas.

As we clear fire ants from these areas, we will move east until we reach the coast, and fire ants are eradicated once and for all.

Planned fire ant treatment is underway in targeted areas of South East Queensland

It is vital that we treat all properties. Just one missed nest will jeopardise our eradication efforts, so please let our fire ant teams in if they need access to your property in the coming months.
