Invasive species of ants

A dangerous species of fire ants will cost Australians more than $22bn by the 2040s if left to run rampant, a new report has found.
It is believed that the red imported fire ants entered Australia in the 1990’s via shipping containers from South America.
With a powerful sting, they pose a threat to both people and livestock and can prey on a variety of insects.
