This is part of the Vancouver branch evening webinar series on Invasive Species.
The European fire ant was first recorded in British Columbia in 2010. They have since impacted many communities and sectors in Metro Vancouver, and several other areas in the province. European fire ants’ distinctive swarming and stinging behaviour have given them high profile as one of the region’s most alarming invasive species. Learn current best practices for detection and management of invasive fire ants, including proper disposal of infested soil.
Tasha Murray, Executive Director, Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver will speak about this invasive species.
