Which species to report

While the introduction of any new ant species to Hawaii could have potentially damaging effects, the two species listed below are of particular concern. If you suspect you have found one of these species, please report it to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture immediately.

How to report ants new to Hawaii

Call the Hawaii Department of Agriculture toll-free pest hotline:

643-PEST (643-7378)

...to report an ant you suspect is a species new to Hawaii, or is a species of concern in Hawaii (such as the red imported fire ant or the little fire ant).

Alternatively, you may call or visit your local Hawaii Department of Agriculture office.

Or, to report new ants on Maui, you may use the online Report-a-pest system.
