NY01025 - Registration of Chemical Control for Red Imported Fire Ants

The project required the regular monitoring of the controlled release formulation SuSCon Green, containing the active ingredient chlorpyrifos, in nursery production growing media for efficacy against Red Imported fir Ant (RIFA) over a minimum 12 month period. Regular monthly sampling occurred to determine the release of chlorpyrifos at a rate that killed RIFA for the entire monitored time. The project was conducted at the Queensland Department of Primary Industries & Fisheries (DPI&F) Redlands Research Station.
