Help sought for war on yellow ants
FAR North Queenslanders are being urged to join the fight against yellow crazy ants ahead of an important baiting period.
Ant eradication teams start ground baiting in southern Cairns this week and will conduct aerial baiting in infested areas later this month.
Wet Tropics Management Authority executive director Scott Buchanan said community members played a vital role in stopping the spread of the invasive species throughout the region.
“It’s going to be extremely difficult but our endeavours have the potential to be a game changer when it comes to dealing with invasive pests globally.”
