The County voucher program ends March 31, 2017. BIISC will be offering a workshop on control of little fire ants (LFA) on the Big Island. Learn about the unusual ecology and habits of these ants in order to plan the most effective treatment. We will discuss different products, how they are used, and how to select the right product for your situation. We will also discuss how you can lower your costs and boost long-term results by working with your neighbors to combat LFA on a neighborhood scale, and provide some helpful strategies for engaging your neighbors in working together.
Update 2/27: The trainings below are full. We apologize to anyone who was not able to register. Please DO NOT just show up as we will not be able to provide you with a voucher unless you are registered! Additional trainings are offered by Hawaii Ant Lab via the County of Hawaii.

We will begin with an informational presentation that will give you what you need to treat effectively. The second half of the workshop will focus on mixing and applying treatment bait, and we will be sharing a simple recipe formula that you can use to mix Tango gel bait at home. We want you to get hands-on with mixing and applying the treatment, so please bring/dress in long pants, long sleeves, and closed-toe shoes, and be ready to get a little messy!
*If you previously attended one of BIISC’s LFA community information classes, you need only attend the the mixing demo to qualify for the County Voucher program. Email (below) to reserve your space and let her know if you already attended a class.
