Red imported fire ants expand their range across the West Indies
Florida Entomologist 84 (4), 735-736
Abstract: We present new records for Solenopsis invicta from the Bahama Islands (Abaco Island, Grand Bahama Island, and Gorda Cay) and the first records from the British Virgin Islands (Guana Island); the United States Virgin Islands (St. Croix, 2 sites); the Turks and Caicos Islands (Providenciales, 7 sites), Antigua (4 sites); and the island of Trinidad. These records indicate that this potentially damaging species is becoming widely distributed across the West Indies.
