The key to controlling fire ants is to take quick action. Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around.
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are known to attack people and animals and can cause extensive damage to gardens and crops, air-conditioning equipment, cement slabs, and electrical wires. Their painful venomous sting 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.
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!
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 it’s so hard to get rid of them!
How Our Fire Ant Treatment Works
To eliminate a fire ant colony, the queen must be killed. In multi-queen colonies, all queens must be killed. If the queens are not killed, the colony will most likely establish itself quickly in a nearby area.
Fire Ant Control, LLC’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the worker ants have eaten the potent granular bait and carried it down into the colony, sterilizing the queen, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
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.
The bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland. 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.
We’re so confident our treatment works, we guarantee that it will rid your residential, commercial or agricultural property of 85-95% of your fire ants for six months at a time, or your money back.
