Guam - According to rhino beetle eradication team leader Roland Quitugua green waste burning at the War in the Pacific National Park in Asan has been completed. He adds that last Friday a pesticide was applied to the ground called Andro for the eradication of the little fire ant. Andro is a granular pesticide which is picked up by the ants and then taken back to the colony poisoning it. Quitugua says the next step will be to apply a specially formulated pesticide identified as tango in 30 days to trees in the area. He stresses that it is important for the public to remain clear of the areas still sectioned off to avoid contact with the little fire ant. Also stating that if residents suspect the little fire ant in their area to not apply pesticides but instead report it to 475-PEST. They will then advise you of the recommended strategy for treatment.
