Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta), also called RIFA, are known to attack people and animals, and can cause extensive damage to gardens and crops, air-conditioning equipment, cement slabs, and electrical wires. They have a very painful venomous sting that can cause serious medical problems.
Fire ants build nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live underneath them in an elaborate network of subterranean tunnels where they reproduce rapidly. Even when you don’t see them, they are expanding right under your feet, and thousands of them can live in a single fire ant colony.
Within each colony are workers and queens. Workers build the nests (mounds), take care of the queen and her eggs, scavenge for food, and defend the colony. Queens can live for two to six years and lay from 1,500 to 5,000 eggs per day, which explains why fire ants multiply so quickly.
The key to controlling fire ants is to take quick action to minimize the damage they can cause to humans, animals and property. Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around.
Temporary Fire Ant Control
Fire ant mounds can be treated with liquid insecticide products as well as chemical dusts and granules. These synthetic chemicals can be poured into or spread around the mounds and are often successful at killing some of the ants. However, they are only temporary solutions.
You may also have heard that pouring boiling water, vinegar, or bleach over the mound can get rid of the fire ants. Boiling water may temporarily kill as many as 60% of the ants, but is harmful for people and the environment and will not kill the queen. The other methods will cause the colony to move elsewhere, often to another place on your property or into your house.
The bottom line is that dealing with fire ants on your own can be dangerous. They are capable of inflicting multiple stings and bites on people, pets and livestock as they defend their colonies. If you fail to eliminate the queen, you won’t ever get rid of them entirely.
Permanent Fire Ant Control
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
The potent 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 only kill surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive.
Because fire ants fly away from the colony to mate, they will eventually come back. Therefore, we recommend treating your property three times a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
