About Fire Ant Colonies
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. Fire ants are master architects; they build and live in a vast network of interconnected subterranean tunnels that extend outward and downward from these central mounds.
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.
Outside of calling licensed pest management professionals like Fire Ant Control, there is no “best way” to kill fire ants. The key to controlling these troublemakers is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage they cause.
Kill Fire Ants from the Inside Out
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 in another 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.
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.
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.
