Guam - 14 sites around the island have been confirmed regarding the little fire ant according to eradication team leader Roland Quitigua the Department of Agriculture is working on eradicating the LFA in five of the sites and are finding that after the initial treatment in series of treatment there are less LFA present. If you suspect that your home has the little fire ant Quitigua says to lightly coat the top end of a chopstick with peanut butter, place it in the area you suspect the LFA to be for 30 minutes then place it in a zip lock bag and store in freezer. You can then bring the sample to the University of Guam house 35 in the Dean's Circle where it can then be determined if it is LFA. He adds that the best time to collect this sample is in the morning. For more information contact Dr. Ross Miller at the University of Guam.
