This is Quest, she is one of two Electric Ant detection dogs in the World! They both are in my care and together we are successfully eradicating electric ants out of Australia!

- emmerlee_in_ct@aussiedogguy what a fabulous idea for a project! Love it. If you ever happen to be in the States and in Richmond, VA, come visit my workplace Shady Grove Animal Clinic! And meet my Bichon Frise Sophie Anne... there are a bunch of pics of her on my Instagram!

- georgethelabradoodleWhat's an electric ant?
- kirwensWhat's an electric ant? Please excuse my ignorance @aussiedogguy
- aussiedogguyAh sorry @georgethelabradoodle 😌 an electric ant is an invasive species of ant from South America! They are in a small area here in Australia and we are trying to completely eradicate them and to do so, I have three Labradors who are the only three in the world trained to detect them 😊 then we get rid of them and it's working quite well! @kirwens 🐜🔫 haha
- kirwensOh woah ! Sounds interesting. Where abouts in Aus have they taken up residency? Or can they be found all over? @aussiedogguy
- aussiedogguyStrictly in the cairns region but we don't know of any live ants colonies at the moment so hopefully we have got them all 😊 @kirwens
- kirwensGood work 👍 but what do you do for work when there are no any colonies in sight? @aussiedogguy
- aussiedogguyWe provide proof of freedom so in places there were ants we make sure the rounds of treatment have successfully eradicated all the ants! 😊 we have to do about 100 hectares a year so it's a lot of ground to cover! @kirwens
- kirwensSounds like it's keeps you nice & busy - kudos to you @aussiedogguy 😊
