Fire Ant Control in Hardee County, Florida
Do you live in Hardee County, Florida? Do you have an infestation of fire ants on your property? If so, then you already know how destructive even a single colony can be. These pests can damage machinery, plant life, even animals, and their bites are quite painful even to humans. What’s worse, there can be millions of them in only one colony. If you are contending with these formidable pests, then you need Fire Ant Control, LLC. Don’t think three times about calling us!
How long do fire ants live?
Worker ants typically live from 30 to 180 days. The fire ant queen, on the other hand, has an average lifespan of two to seven years and lays up to 1,500 eggs per day!
Can I drown fire ants to get rid of them?
No; not even floods will drown or deter these pests. When their nests are flooded, they emerge from underground, link their legs together, and form a watertight ball or “living raft” that can float on the water. The worker ants carefully protect the queen in the middle and carry any eggs along until they come across dry land where they re-establish a new colony.
What is the best way to kill fire ants?
Outside of calling licensed pest management professionals like Fire Ant Control, LLC, there is no “best way” to kill these destructive ants. The key to controlling them is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage they cause to humans, animals and property.
In the case of fire ants, the greatest success when it comes to extermination happens when you act quickly. That’s why it is worth calling us—trained professionals—if you even suspect that you might have a fire ant problem.
Even if you can’t see their mounds in your yard, it is quite possible that there are one or more large colonies underground, growing larger and stronger, becoming more dangerous. It is at least worth a phone call to diagnose the situation, don’t you think?
Choose a Proven Fire Ant Killer
Fire Ant Control’s proven treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. 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 are short-lived (only killing surface ants), sometimes dangerous, and very expensive.
Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
But beware! Fire ants fly away from their colonies to mate, so they will eventually come back. Consequently, we recommend treating your property three times a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
