Report any suspicious ant sightings such as
Red Imported Fire Ants or Yellow Crazy Ants immediately, as these pests can spread rapidly.
Please do not disturb the ants or nests or try to treat the infestation yourself as some ants are known to inflict painful bites and stings.
If safe to do so, take a photo of the suspicious ants, including a scale (a coin or key) in any image and forward it with this report.
