watch for ants
Hawke's Bay Regional Council is calling on
residents to alert them to new infestations of
the invasive ant species, argentine ants,
found in parts of Hawke's Bay.
Council staff have already talked to a
number of property owners about argentine
ants being on their property and provided
advice for controlling the spread and
eradicating them on properties.
Hawke's Bay Regional Council biosecurity
officer Alice McNatty said the council relied
on new reports to monitor the pest.
We are monitoring whether argentine
ants are spreading in Hawke's Bay and so
welcome new calls from anyone who has not
previously been contacted by us about
infestations on their property,'' she said.
The control of argentine ants is a
householder's responsibility, as Hawke's Bay
Regional Council does not control ants on
The council does, however, provide advice
on identifying the ant, control methods and
A best baiting guide is available on the
council's website hbrc.govt.nz or residents
can request a printed copy.
Summer is a good time to look for these
ants, as they are on the move and we are
outdoors in the garden and better able to
spot unusual looking ant activity across
pavements, patios or around the home,'' Ms
Argentine ants are two to three
millimetres long and a uniform light brown
or honey colour, rather than the darker
colours of more common ants.
They are mostly spread by people
transporting infested pot plants, firewood,
soil, caravans, cars or freight.
As the ants are aggressive and work in
large numbers, they become a major lifestyle
pest, infesting gardens and homes, reducing
other insect and animal species and
impacting on horticulture.
Argentine ant bites are not poisonous, but
can be irritating and cause allergic-type
reactions in some people.
Anyone who finds ants matching the
description on their property, can contact Ms
McNatty on 06 833 8083 or 0800 108 838.
People can also collect some ants in a jar
labelled with theircontact details, and bring
them into the regional council offices in Napier
to have them identified.
iQuarium is go
A visit to the National Aquarium has
become more interactive, with the attraction
pioneering innovative technology with free
Visitors could get details of the
aquarium's collection through the use of
codes entered into smart devices, android
phones and iPads, said manager Rob Yar-
If you have an iPhone and your Wi-Fi is
turned on, on arrival you'll get a welcome to
the aquarium' message with check out our
free digital tours?'. Then just click on either
video or audio tours and away you go.''
Mr Yarrall said the new technology
enhanced the overall experience for visitors
and made aquarium visits more memorable.
Visitors get to be their own virtual tour
guides. They will be given a unique look into
the lives of the animals through 90-second
videos, watched through free Wi-Fi on hand-
held devices. The videos will show footage of
feeding or other habitual behaviour that
they may not get to see during their visit.''
The codes can be scanned at the aquarium
or prior to arrival from the aquarium
If people do not have smart devices, an
audio version of the tour is available on a
pre-loaded MP3 player they can buy from
the aquarium and take away when they
leave. It can also be downloaded from the
website to personal MP3 players prior to
