Senators approve fire ant funding

By 67AM KPUA News

A bill to provide Hawai`i County more than 300-thousand dollars to combat the fire ant is a step closer to approval following last weeks passage by the Senate Ways and Means Committee.

The money would be used by the Department of Parks and Recreation to address the ants spread within county parks, test pesticides for controlling and eradicating the invasive species and develop strategies other counties can use.

The fire ant arrived on the Big Island 15 years ago and has since spread to Maui, O`ahu and Kauai. Its bite can cause painful welts and itching.
