Control Your Fire Ants in Naples, Florida
If you are battling red imported fire ants in Naples, Florida, Fire Ant Control, LLC, can help control them and protect your residential, agricultural or commercial property from damage and destruction.
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) were accidentally brought into the port of Mobile, Alabama, from Brazil in about 1930. They are the worst of all fire ant species because they mate often, reproduce rapidly, are more aggressive, and have an extremely painful venomous sting that can be serious or even lethal.
Fire Ant Control, LLC, headquartered in Bokeelia, Florida, along with our sister companies, serves the entire imported fire ant quarantine area of the southeastern U.S., and are capable of treating up to 1,000 acres per day.
Why Fire Ants Love Naples, FL
Fire ants adore moist land. Favorite nesting grounds 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, pastures, and cultivated fields. This makes the Naples area, and the majority of Florida, a tropical paradise for fire ants!
Fire ants build nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live beneath them in elaborate networks 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 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.
Fire Ant Control Has the Best Solution!
Fire Ant Control is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on any size or type of land. Careful application of our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
Our granular bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
Our bait is regulated and approved for use on public and private lands. Our service is fully licensed and insured, and guaranteed for six months. Your property will be nearly free of fire ants within weeks; however, because fire ants fly to mate, they may return. For this reason, we recommend having your property treated twice a year to prevent them from re-colonizing your property.
Although bait products may seem expensive, they are very effective at killing the egg-laying queens and provide longer-term control than many other solutions. This makes our proven treatments extremely affordable in the long run.
