Fire Ants Love Florida
Florida’s impressive ecosystem is home to myriad wildlife. It has a tepid, warm, temperate climate with significant rainfall—it is moist and wet and “friendly” to many flora and fauna. In other words, it is just what fire ants are looking for.
These pests love moist land. They live most often in open areas with plenty of direct sunlight, and prefer watered lawns, highway shoulders, pond shores, and river banks as nesting grounds.
Fire Ants Harm Your Flora
Many areas in Florida are heavily agricultural and susceptible to significant damage from fire ants. These insects devour young plants—saplings and seedlings—and consume germinating seeds for citruses, flowers, and grasses. They also damage the earthworm population (which is vital for growing plants). Their movement and eating habits can expose root systems, which dries them out and makes them susceptible to illness and death. They are also capable of tunneling into the bases of small and youthful plants.
Additionally, fire ants compete with many beneficial organisms. Since they are imported, they are not naturally part of the ecosystem in Florida and their presence can damage and reduce the populations of plants and insects such as local, native ants and bees (which can have devastating effects on a growing season).
Fire Ants Harm Livestock & Equipment
Farming is also greatly affected. Not only are workers vulnerable to bites, stings, infections, and allergic reaction, but many livestock are vulnerable to attack by fire ants. This includes very young animals, animals in cages and pens, and sick or injured animals. Any weakened animal is vulnerable to a fire ant attack.
Additionally, fire ants can do damage to farming equipment, electrical supplies and live wires, haying operations, and many other farming operations. They are bad for construction, bad for farms, and bad for both animals and workers.
Choose a Proven Fire Ant Killer
Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around! Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out. The potent bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not immediate but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
We guarantee that our treatment will rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your residential, commercial or agricultural property, whether public or private, for four months at a time, or your money back.
Because new colonies can invade when ants fly off to mate and start a new colony, or when an existing colony expands into new territory, we highly recommend treatments every four months to keep these troublemakers under control.
