NT: Pest Ant Control

Conduct coordinated and aggressive action to control pest ant species, including electric ants and yellow crazy ants.


Pest ant species have the potential to take over the natural environment, killing local ant species as well as small mammals and frogs. Containment and eradication is essential at known infestations, with vigilant monitoring in other areas to ensure no new populations establish.

Examples of Local Action

  • Some existing monitoring and baiting occurring eg. by Mareeba Shire Council at landfill stations. Expand the monitoring and control activities to other areas.
