Yellow crazy ants are one of the world’s worst invasive alien species. Once established super colonies, they swarm aggressively and destroy entire ecosystems, killing most other invertebrates and small animals. Yellow crazy ants have been observed to silence entire forests, and each super-colony can host hundreds if not thousands of queens.
The Invasive Species Council was formed in 2002 to seek stronger laws, policies and programs to protect nature from harmful pests, weeds and diseases.
The Invasive Species Council acknowledges the Traditional Custodians throughout Australia and their connections to land and sea. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
