Fire ants have the potential to destroy Australia's outdoor lifestyle, environment and agricultural production. The presence of fire ants will prevent our children from safely playing in backyards and family picnics in parks and playgrounds will no longer be regular events.
- Inflict a painful, burning sting;
- Invade backyards, parks and recreational areas;
- Damage native flora and fauna;
- Injure animals and damage crops; and
- Damage equipment.
If you suspect that you have fire ants, ring the SARDI Call Centre on (08) 8303 9400 or click here for further information.
