» State invasive species officials say they may meet with Australian trainers about whether using scent-detecting dogs could help Hawaii's fight against little fire ants. If such a program is started, they say, it could take up to six months before the dogs are used for that purpose. A Page B1 story on Feb. 22 said officials hope that the dogs and their handlers would be working in Hawaii in April. Also, House Bill 2469 would appropriate unspecified funds for a pilot project to combat little fire ants, including a canine detection team. The story reported that the bill would provide $500,000 for the project.
