鹿児島大学構内におけるハイドロジェルベイト剤による アシジロヒラフシアリ個体数の推移とその評価

The exhibition building of Kagoshima University Museum, adjacent to the Botanical Garden, has been pestered by an invasion of the tramp ant Technomyrmex brunneus from the gardens. This alien ant has expanded their distribution range in southern Japan and cause serious problems as a nuisance pest in residential areas. In this study, we attempted to employ a hydrogel bait to control the number of T. brunneus. The method was easy to be installed and highly effective.
