Please read this important Alien Pest Alert from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture on the Little Fire Ant.
Important notes:

Little Fire Ants can cause blindness in pets.

Little Fire Ant infestations are a “disclosure issue” in property sales.

In the Galapagos Islands, when the Little Fire Ant populations are large, workers are prevented from harvesting coffee.

Quarantine all vegetative matter you bring onto your property and test for the Little Fire Ant, this includes potted plants, soil and mulch.

  1. Thank you for posting this and bringing more awareness. I think that folks new to the islands are not aware of how dangerous these pests can be. I am going to post a link to your blog on my blog. Thank you again, Ann
