Control of a mobile pest: the imported fire ant

Control of a mobile pest: the imported fire ant

Southern Journal of Agricultural Economics 7(2): 35-41

This study evaluates the productivity of efforts to limit the spread of the imported fire ant (IFA), and elements affecting demand for its abatement in southeastern states. The following section presents quarantine model and parameter estimates for the 1959 to 1973 period. The demand section gives estimates from two models for evaluating public pest abatement demand. The last section uses quarantine and demand results, with some observations on scale economies, to discuss IFA treatment policy.
