Welcome to our one-stop shop — where you will find everything you need to know about changes to South East Queensland’s fire ant biosecurity zones and their associated movement controls.
From Wednesday 27 May 2020, amendments to the Biosecurity Regulation 2016 will come into effect.
Fire ants are a super pest that can spread naturally by ground, through flight and in flood water, and by human-assisted movement of a range of materials.
The changes will provide extra protection for areas that have undergone the National Red Imported Fire Ant Eradication Program’s eradication activities, and reduce the chance of the pest spreading through the movement of infested material such as soil, gravel, mulch and hay.
What are the key changes?
