Fire Ants in Hayfields and Pastures
Today, red imported fire ants infest hundreds of millions of acres, and the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) predicts they will eventually make their homes across the southern United States from coast to coast, where they already have a major impact on farming activities, from workers in the fields to vulnerable livestock.
Fire ants in hayfields and pastures have been known to cause:
- Livestock injury or death
- Infested hay bales
- Injury to field workers
- Reduced hay yield from raising cutter height to avoid tall, hardened mounds
- Time lost unclogging and repairing machinery
- Electrical and utility equipment damage
Newborn livestock and confined animals are particularly vulnerable to fire ant attacks. The ants are a significant threat to very young animals, to caged and penned animals, to newborns if they lie down or are born on or near a mound, to weak animals that suffer from wounds or open sores, and those that are old and unable to move out of harm’s way.
The frequency of calf and cow injuries and deaths often increases during hot summer months when the fire ants are starved for moisture and food. If birthing is scheduled to occur at this time of year, placing the livestock in a designated pasture that has been treated with our effective bait will help.
A Permanent Solution
Fire Ant Control, LLC provides a proven fire ant treatment that works for properties ranging from a single acre to thousands of acres. We provide exact application rates with a minimum of interference to your daily operation.
Our solution focuses on sterilizing the queen. With our precise application rates, the bait falls to the ground where few living things other than ants will encounter it. The bait is ingested by worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally, and no new ants will be born.
Fire Ant Control’s treatment is superior to sprays and insecticides that kill only surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive. With two treatments a year, your property can be 95% free of fire ants, and safer for your crops and livestock.
