    We conducted a 10-month manipulative experiment in primary and secondary rainforests. In each forest type, a 625 m2 treatment plot was isolated from the surrounding forest and 135 bait stations treated with fipronil, S-methoprene, and hydramethylnon were placed in trees to suppress ants. Ant activity was monitored in the forest canopy and understorey with an additional 65 stations in treatment and control plots. The study introduces a new method of selective eradication of ants from rainforest ecosystem.
