Mayor Guru on Argentinian Ants

May 7, 2018

 Kapiti Mayor K Gurunathan has responded to the DOC emergency alert about the Argentinian Ant infestation of the area around the departure site to Kapiti Island Nature Reserve and believes it’s a clarion call for a proper best practice bio security facility.


Mayor Guru says for several years they have been repeatedly been alerting DOC on the need of such a facility. Current practice of undertaking bio security checks on the car park tarmac or at the  nearby cafe is not good enough.

Mayor Guru says this current pest infestation highlights the continuing lack of such a basic protective shield needed for Kapiti Islands high biodiversity value and he takes this opportunity to urge DOC to initiate the steps necessary to do this.
