Imported Fire Ant Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


Regulatory personnel from the University of Kentucky’s Office of the State Entomologist need to continually survey for fire ants using visual surveys and/or baited canisters (baited with peanut oil) to determine the extent of the problem. Nursery inspectors, the state survey coordinator, and/or extension specialists will conduct visual surveys and/or trapping survey using baited canisters, as necessary, to determine locations of fire ant mounds around the detection sites at Land Between the Lakes national Recreation Area, Lake Barkley State Park, and Kenlake State Park. In addition to these known locations, recreational and lakefront sites throughout western Kentucky should be surveyed to verify that no other mounds exist and become established.
