Fire Ants Expanding their Territory

Fire Ants are Expanding their Territory 

Fire Ants are expanding their territory in NC and additional counties or portions of counties are now under quarantine.  Essentially, for the green industry this means that certain products (nursery crops, pine needles, hay, straw, etc) can't be move out of those counties without being properly treated.  For more information read the link attached above. 

For more information contact your local Cooperative Extension Center and ask for the Commercial Horticulture Agent.
