A new pest is in the neighborhood.
Kinoya resident, Nitya Nand claims that black ants has eaten its way through everything in his garden.
Nand claims this is the first time he has met such a resilient pest.
“These are not normal ants. I’ve never seen stubborn ants like this before. I’ve spent about seven cans of mortein to keep them out of the house, I’ve used hot water and chili and salt to try and subdue them but they will not, they seem to be multiplying every second.”
There hasn’t been any official verification yet on what type of ants this is and whether or not it’s a pest.
When approached, Agriculture Minister Inia Seruiratu told FBC News the matter was new to him and that they will be investigating.
