This is trouble. I hope they get this under control ASAP.

The container arrived June 23 from Nansha port in Guangzhou, China -- the same departure port for the container carrying the fire ants discovered in western Japan.

I guess China is and will be doing everything to trouble Japan.

Oh dear. More nasty biting things to fret over. I used to think at least Japan doesn't have as many insect/arachnid deplorables as Australia but apparently the redback spider has been found here, as well. Dang.

According to Nagoya Port Authority, seven ants were spotted on the side of a container and exterminated with pesticide Tuesday.

Seven? I thought they were talking about a colony or something. Unless there is a queen, then there's probably no chance of them breeding.

Ants, etc can feed up a Queen when needed.
