Fire ants are reddish-brown with a black-dark brown abdomen

Fire ants are found in South East Queensland. Fire ants are dangerous imported pests that could spread to large areas of Australia, severely damaging the environment, our outdoor lifestyle and the agriculture and tourism industries.

Fire ants have been declared a notifiable pest under the Plant Protection Act 1989 and landholders must report suspected sightings of fire ants on their property to DEEDI or face heavy fines.
