Requirements for moving fire ant carrier materials.


New requirement for property treatment:

  • A carrier cannot be moved from a Queensland property where fire ants are currently present or have been found in the past 7 years unless the property is subject to an insect growth regulator (IGR) treatment regime, as set out in Part 2, Clause 14 of the Emergency Order.
  • Confirmation will be required in the Record of Movement Declaration.
  • Note the definitions of IGR treatment regime and insect growth regulator in Part 1, Clause 9.

Transiting the fire ant infested area with carrier materials

You can move a fire ant carrier material through the known infested area of Queensland into NSW only if:

  • remains in preventative conditions while it is in the fire ant infested area and until the carrier leaves the fire ant infested area, or
  • moves through the fire ant infested area without stopping.

To make sure you have all the information you need about movement controls and regulations, visit Market access on the NSW DPI website.
