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 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.

We understand the health and safety of your family is important to you. To keep you safe and reduce the chance of additional strain on Queensland's health services from fire ant stings, we’re continuing treatment with COVID-19 safe practices in place.
