Red fire ants are small and strong insects that can wreak havoc on a property. They can be dangerous to livestock, plants, machinery, and even humans, and they can all but shut down operations on farmland, golf courses, and other properties.
Red Fire Ant Infestations are Dangerous
The bite or sting of red imported fire ants can cause considerable pain. When the ground around their mounds is disturbed, hundreds of worker ants will swarm from underground and aggressively sting whoever or whatever is standing nearby.
Although the terrible pain will subside, some people are allergic to the venom in the bite and may experience itching, swelling, and redness. It’s also possible for anaphylactic shock to occur, which requires quick medical attention to mitigate the risk of severe complications requiring hospitalization—or even death.
Fire ants can be deadly to farm animals, especially newborns and animals that are weak or sick. They will also attack and kill bees and beneficial native ant populations.
The destructive pests also affect machinery and electrical equipment, eating through power lines, wreaking havoc with traffic lights, junction boxes, and air conditioning equipment and causing damage to machinery, irrigation, and transformer boxes.
If you have seen one fire ant on your property, then, even if you have not identified any mounds, it is highly likely there are other ants. And where there are other ants, there is certainly, somewhere, a colony. What is perhaps a scarier thought is that a typical colony with one queen can have as many as 7 million ants! And it is possible for more than one colony to exist on the same property.
Don’t let fire ants take over your property. Protect your belongings, your animals, and the safety of you and your family. Call us today if you think that you might need professional intervention (which is recommended in all cases of fire ant infestation).
Our Proven Treatment
Fire Ant Control’s potent, food-like granular bait contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen, kills the colony from the inside out, and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland.
Worker ants eat it, carry it down into the colony where they share it with other ants, and the entire ant population dies naturally. With two treatments a year, your pastures can be safer for your livestock.
