Fire Ants Love Brandon, FL
Brandon, in Hillsborough County, has a humid subtropical climate like the neighboring Tampa Bay area. The sunshine, warmth and humidity along with the proximity to lakes, ponds, neighborhood waterways and green spaces combine to create a paradise for fire ants!
Destructive and dangerous fire ants adore moist land. Their favorite places to build nests include open, sunny areas, and their mounds are commonly found around stumps and trees, in rotting logs and under sidewalks, as well as in lawns, parks, playgrounds, golf courses, athletic fields, meadows and pastures, as well as wilderness areas and agricultural land.
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. Fire ants are master architects; they build and live in a vast network of interconnected subterranean tunnels that extend outward and downward from these central mounds.
If your property has been infested with single-queen colonies, there are probably 40 to 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. If you have multiple-queen colonies, there may be 200 or more mounds and up to 40 million red fire ants per acre!
The Fire Ant Control Solution
Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around! Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
The bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not immediate but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear and no new ants will be born.
Experts agree that a complete lifecycle from egg to adult takes between 22 and 38 days. This means that, within about one month, you will be 85-95% fire ant free.
The bait we use is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that only kill surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive.
On private property, there is no re-entry interval, which means that you, your family, your pets and other animals can walk anywhere on the property immediately after a treatment has been applied.
Because fire ants fly away from the colony to mate, they will eventually come back. Therefore, we recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
