Fire ants

With the latest phase of eradication treatment now complete in areas of the Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Ipswich, reporting your feedback on whether your property is fire ant free is vital.

Fire ants or not, we need to know by 31 August 2019. Your checks will help us to confirm we’ve got every last fire ant nest.

Check your property and report your findings

Fire ants are one of the world's most invasive species. If they establish permanently in Queensland they will ruin our way of life, and have serious health and environmental impacts. Everyday activities, such as barbecues, picnics and sporting events may no longer be possible in high infestation areas.

Under the Biosecurity Act 2014, everyone, including individuals and organisations has a general biosecurity obligation to take all reasonable steps to ensure they do not spread fire ants. View a map of the fire ant biosecurity zones and learn more about what you need to do to prevent the spread of fire ants.

With your help we have the best chance of ridding Queensland of fire ants. Check your yard and report back to us using our online form or by calling us on 13 25 23.
