Invasive ants are a growing ecological and economic threat. With greater international trade comes the increased probability that species will be transported along with the goods via ships and seaports. Investigation of their impacts on native fauna is critical to understanding how best to prevent damage to existing habitats and communities by these invaders. Along with this understanding, new methods for control focused on impacting the invading species while leaving native species unharmed will bring about the most effective measures for addressing the issues associated with biological invasions.
