Maui's Little Fire And

November 12, 2009
Maui Weekly
Maui County DOA Entomologist Mach Fukada (front page with county worker Tamara Wells) led a workshop for over 50 county and state workers to help them detect and report sightings of the Little Fire Ant, a new pest species recently confirmed on Maui. The ant, which is smaller than a grain of rice, packs a painful bite that causes weeks of intense itching in humans, and can cause blindness or death in animals. Early detection and rapid response will be key in controlling their populations.
