Case studies

Download our invasive ant management database for details on many ant eradication and control programmes. We also provide case studies of management and treatment options for the 5 worst invasive ants, as well as the tropical fire ant and browsing ant.

If your problem ant is not one of these ants, there is little management information available, so read about controlling other ants. If you have information on managing these and other ants, and you would like this information included here for others to use, please contact us.
