Abstract: 本研究利用台北大學三峽校區入侵紅火蟻撲滅計畫所蒐集之資料進行分析。以掉
落式陷阱定量估計當地火蟻及其他螞蟻的活動量,每間隔 2~4 個月進行一次調查,
每次調查後,使用火蟻餌劑 (後所稱餌劑皆指百利普芬;pyripoxyfen) 進行入侵紅火
蟻防治,共累積 14 次調查記錄。本研究從中挑選四次調查資料,分別為防治前資料
(before controlling period, B period)、防治進行中 (controlling period, C period)、
防治後 (after controlling period, A period) 以及防治末期 (termination period, T
period) 進行研究。結果顯示於防治開始後,入侵紅火蟻 (簡稱為火蟻) 的族群數量
火蟻後,整體的物種豐度 (richness) 與個體數量 (abundance) 受到中等但不顯著之
The data for this study was generated from the pilot study for the
eradication program of the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta, RIFA) that
was carried out on Sanshia campus of the National Taipei University. The
numbers of RIFA and local ants were monitored by pitfall traps at 2 to 4 month
intervals followed by bait broadcasting. The data from 4 periods totalling 14
monitoring date was chosen and defined as the before control period (B period),
the control period (C period), the after control period (A period) and the
termination period (T period), respectively. The overall pattern of population
dynamic suggested that the population of RIFA declined rapidly after control
was initiated and remained suppressed for the duration of this study. The
abundance of local ants on the campus grounds did not seem to be affected
when the RIFA were being controlled by bait broadcasting. Based on three
different diversity indices, the level of the local ant populations decreased
significantly directly after treatment and then gradually and slowly increased
again. However, it never reached the level of the initial invasion. Thus, once
the RIFA were almost eliminated, the local ant community were able to revive
themselves, even under the presence of bait (pyripoxyfen), although their level
did not reach the same numbers as before. This phenomenon may be an
indication that the impact of RIFA to local ant diversity is much more critical
than of any bait application. Compared with the devastation caused by the
invasion of RIFA, using bait to control RIFA appropriately may be the only
acceptable choice. Based on an investigation of RIFA density, even when
adjusted for volume and timing of the bait application, introducing a different
strategy such as conservation of competitive native ant species can not only
prevent the unrecoverable damage to the diversity of the native ant population,
but it also offers us a chance to eradicate the RIFA.
