Ant infestation covers 4 acres in Waimanalo

HONOLULU — An extensive survey of an area in Waimanalo has determined approximately 4 acres are infested with little fire ants, tiny invasive ants that can inflict painful stings. Crews surveyed more than 50 acres from Kumuhau Street to Mahailua Street in Waimanalo and determined that the infestation area is on state land and in mulch areas located outside nurseries in that area. Little fire ants were detected previously on hapuu from Hawaii Island at a few nurseries and garden shops earlier this year, but those areas were treated and are now clear of little fire ants.

Today in West Hawaii history | April 11

April 11, 1984: Mauna Loa continues to fountain fire amid a search for a small sightseeing plane that went missing with four men aboard. The Coast Guard says six military air craft and Civil Air Patrol planes were concentrating on the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea slopes searching for the four Kaneohe-based U.S. Marines. Lava output continues at about half the rate at the start of the eruption, however, there has been no letup in harmonic tremor. No active lava finger was closer than 20 miles from Hilo.
