The purpose here is to review this research, although because of space limitations, much of the recent work concerning the chemical toxicology and persistence of mirex, the chemical currently used for control of imported fire ants.

The use of three species-specific chemical characters (venom alkaloids, cuticular hydrocarbons, and trail pheromones) to define S. invicta, S. richteri, and hybrid populations in the United States have important consequences regarding the species status of the two imported fire ants and the taxonomy of fire ant populations in South America.

The poison sac of queens of the imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, has been identified as the novel storage site of a queen pheromone. The pheromone elicits orientation and attraction in…

The imported fire ant,Solenopsis invicta, has a highly efficient mechanism for filtering particles from food material and offers little hope for the success of controlled release insecticide formulations that require ingestion of solid particles.
Imported Fire Ant Toxic Bait Studies: Evaluation of Toxicants
- C. E. Stringer, C. S. Lofgren, F. Bartlett
- 1 December 1964
Test methods were developed by which it was determined that an effective toxicant must exhibit delayed action over a wide dosage range, be readily transferred from one ant to another and not be repellent to the ants when incorporated in a bait.
