Abstract

Specimens of ants submitted in February by the Rockingham Health Inspector were identified as Argentine ants, these being the first recorded from this area. Two areas of infestation are present in the Rockingham townsite—one adjacent to the hotel and the other near the Fisher Street jetty. Active steps were taken by the local authorities to bring the infestation under control.
