Why Fire Ants Love Naples, Florida
Naples is perched along the southwestern Florida coast on the Gulf of Mexico. Also known as The Paradise Coast, the area includes many ponds, lakes and bays, as well as the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, which features 35,000 acres of winding waterways and mangrove islands. In other words, Naples is fire ant heaven!
Destructive and dangerous fire ants love sunshine, moisture, warmth and humidity, and prefer watered lawns, golf courses, highway shoulders, lake shores and river banks for their nesting grounds.
They build those nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live underneath them in elaborate networks of tunnels where they reproduce rapidly. Even when you don’t see them, they are expanding right under your feet, and tens of 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 seven years and lay from 1,500 to 5,000 eggs per day, which explains why fire ants multiply so quickly.
If you’re thinking all the water in and around Napes will deter or drown them, think again! Even during floods, the colonies will actually emerge from their nests, form a huge ball or raft that can float on the water, and flow with the water until they come upon a dry area or object that can shelter them until they can re-establish a nest (mound) in the soil.
Choose a Proven Fire Ant Killer
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant 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.
Fire ants fly away from their colonies to mate, however, so they will eventually come back. Consequently, we recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
