The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is conducting a Surveillance and Eradication Program for invasive ant species at targeted premises across Western Australia in areas considered at risk of invasive ant establishment.

We have recently detected an invasive ant species, on or in proximity of your premises, that is a declared pest of national significance under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007.

To assist us in ensuring this infestation is contained and controlled, please complete the tracing form via the button at the bottom of this page.

This form should take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your co-operation.
