Densities of monogynous red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) colonies in Georgia pastures

Journal of Entomological Science 29(3): 367-369

Densities of monogynous red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) colonies in Georgia pastures

Eighteen counties in Georgia were surveyed during the summer of 1993 for colonies of Solenopsis invicta. The results suggested that of 270 sites surveyed, there were an average of 66.6 active colonies/ha throughout the State. Densities of S. invicta in individual pastures ranged from 0 to 213.9 active colonies/ha.
