In rare cases, people have died from allergic reactions. • Fire ants have breached containment zones in south-east Queensland six times in the past six weeks, triggering the expansion of biosecurity controls at the New South Wales border. • The imported red fire ants – considered one of the world’s worst invasive species – were detected at a site at Tallebudgera last week, about 5.5km from the NSW border. The find was the farthest south the pest has been detected in Queensland. The march of the species towards the border comes amid calls for an aggressive pivot – and much more funding – to ensure the success of a faltering eradication program. NSW at ‘extreme risk’ of fire ant invasion after nest discovered 5.5km from border The discovery at Tallebudgera automatically triggered a NSW biosecurity control order – enacted in February – that bans or restricts the movement of certain materials from within 5km of any site where red imported fire ants have been detected. Soil, mulch, baled hay, turf and other materials cannot be moved across the NSW border from an “infested area” without inspection and certification. Under that order, most major motorway border crossings are now within controlled areas. The NSW agriculture minister, Tara Moriarty, said it was important to keep NSW free from this invasive and aggressive pest. She said if it became established it would “have a huge impact on the way we live our lives and could affect our export markets and ability to trade”.
