Services We Provide
Athletic Fields: Fire ant infestations are dangerous. Although students and coaches are the most likely to encounter fire ants, they often build nests near bleachers, around goal posts and dugouts, in pavement cracks, and near HVAC equipment. They also nest in electrical and utility housings, moving soil into the units and causing shorts and other mechanical problems.
Pastures & Fields: There are many ways that fire ants can impact pasture and fields. Hay yields are typically reduced due to having to raise cutter height to avoid tall, hardened fire ant mounds. Grazing areas can be reduced. Fire ants are also harmful to plants, causing girdling and killing plants and trees. They tunnel into the base of young plant stalks and into potato tubers. Fire ants collect plant seeds. Then they scatter them around their mounds affecting plant distribution and abundance.
Horse Farms: Protecting your horse pasture and livestock from harm can also be a challenge. Fire ant bites can be deadly to injured horses, unborn foals (if the mother is stung), newborns, penned or corralled animals, and old animals that cannot move out of harm’s way. Calf and cow injuries and deaths often increase during hot summer months when the fire ants are starved for moisture and food.
Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around! Our proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. The potent granular bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that are short-lived (only killing surface ants), sometimes dangerous, and very expensive.
Our treatment is guaranteed for 4 months. We highly recommend treatments three times per year to keep these troublemakers under control. Not only do existing and new fire ants consume all of the bait, but fire ants are like weeds. If you stop treating for them, they will come back.
