Authorities Wrap Up First Round of Fire Ant Investigation in Busan

The Agriculture Ministry says a first-round investigation into the arrival of venomous fire ants has been closed.

Authorities found more than two dozen fire ants last week in Busan harbor, as well as a nest big enough for a thousand of the insects.

However, no more ants have been found since quarantine and pesticide measures were implemented.

Authorities plan to hold a final inspection of the harbor on Monday. If nothing is found, disinfection measures will be lifted. 

The government will continue investigations on other major harbors and container ports throughout the country.
