Well the Little Fire Ants have now spread statewide here in Hawaii… don’t expect the State to protect you or your pets.
The amount of money that the State of Hawaii is wasting on Little Fire Ants and attempting to control them is amazing. Those of us that live in Puna know that you can’t get rid of them once you get them.
The state needs to look at other options like us Puna residents do now and educate folks how to keep them out of your house and away from your pets.
Take action now and do things like use ant insecticide chalk and other measures such as keeping your house clean of food items they could access to keep them out of your house.
Yes, the pain from a Little Fire Ant hurts like a bitch! Keeping them outside of your house is the best recommendation I can make.
