The Kapiti Coast District Council has confirmed an Argentine ant extermination trial will begin this weekend.
Chair of Raumati Residents Association Trevor Daniell says “this trial will be used to inform us for a much larger baiting programme, which will get underway in the Spring".
He says the hope is to get most Raumati South locals involved and really hit the ant problem on the head.
Daniell says “most of the participants will be using a low cost, home prepared borax bait. Four people have decided to buy commercial treatment. It will be interesting comparing how both systems work.”
The extermination programme will be undertaken on Dell Road, Raumati South.
