Invasive Ants

Argentine ants, an invasive species, are in this park. While they can impact native wildlife and be a nuisance to park visitors, they do not bite or sting.


TPWD is working to reduce the ants without harming natural resources. State Parks policy allows you to treat camping gear and equipment with over-the-counter chemicals, according to label. You cannot apply pesticides to park property. Before leaving, thoroughly inspect your vehicle, RV, camping gear, and other equipment, and notify staff if you find ants.


Learn more about invasive ants and how to avoid spreading them.
