Little fire ants (LFA) continue to threaten Hawaiʻi’s environment, agriculture, human health, and way of life. Are you interested in learning more about LFA and how to manage them on your property? Take that first step by attending one of our upcoming events.
Town Hall events are an opportunity to learn from different agencies that work to tackle LFA and broader invasive species issues. Learn about LFA treatment from the Hawaii Ant Lab (HAL) and how to improve the state’s biosecurity from the Big Island Invasive Species Committee (BIISC) and the Little Fire Ant HUI.
Community Information Sessions are geared towards educating residents about LFA and how to successfully control them on your property. Attendees will learn about LFA biology and behavior, different treatment methods/products, and how neighborhood groups can qualify for a free demo day, which includes a hands-on demonstration of bait mixing and application.
