FIRE ANT IS FOUND IN CONTAINER FROM CHINA

Fire ant (Solenopsis invicta) is found in a container from China. All the containers have been disinfected, but there is no way to affirm that there are no more of these ants or that they do not proliferate in the Japanese territory. The Ministry of the Environment is concerned about the adaptation of this ant in Japan, because the bite of this species can cause anaphylaxis.
