Maps of fire ant biosecurity zones

Changes have been made to the Biosecurity Regulation 2016 to help in the fight against fire ants. If you move materials that may carry fire ants, it is important that you familiarise yourself with the changes to fire ant zones and requirements.

If you own or work for a business that works with or moves material that may carry fire ants (i.e. soil, turf, potted plants, baled hay or straw, mulch and manure) in South East Queensland, you may need a permit.

You can use our fire ant advice tool, or the following fire ant biosecurity zone maps of South East Queensland, to find out if you will need a permit.
