Apr. 3, 2014, Burnaby, BC — A large garden centre in British Columbia is dealing with an infestation of European fire ants, an invasive species known to swarm and sting both people and pets.

transport of soil and plants. The owners of GardenWorks, which has six
locations in B.C., have known about European fire ants at their
