Why Fire Ants Are So Difficult to Kill?
Fire ants owe a great deal of their success at invading our backyards, athletic fields, parks, golf courses and other property to their ability to protect themselves from predators and reproduce quickly.
To kill a colony, the queen(s) must be killed. Properties infested with single queen colonies may have 40 – 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. If infested with multiple queen colonies, there may be 200 or more mounds and up to 40 million red fire ants per acre.
If all of the queens are not killed, they will continue laying eggs at up to 800 eggs per day. Those eggs will mature in as few as nine days, and the colony will remain fully operational.
Fire Ant Control, LLC’s potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out. The 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.
Dealing with fire ants on your own can be dangerous. They can inflict multiple stings and bites on people, pets and livestock as they defend their colonies. If you fail to eliminate the queen, you won’t ever get rid of them entirely.
Temporary solutions include treating fire ant mounds with liquid insecticide products or chemical dusts and granules. These synthetic chemicals can be poured into or spread around the mounds and may succeed at killing some of the ants, but the chemicals can be toxic to people and animals.
Boiling water may temporarily kill as many as 60% of the ants, but it won’t kill the queen. Pouring vinegar or bleach over the mound will typically cause the colony to move elsewhere, often inside your house or to another place on your property.
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment zeroes in on sterilizing the queen. Regulated and approved for use on public and private lands, our bait contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on farmland, pastures, and hay fields.
Fire Ant Control’s service is fully licensed and insured, and guaranteed for six months. Because fire ants fly to mate, however, they will eventually come back. For this reason, we recommend having your property treated twice a year for the best results.
We guarantee that our fully licensed and insured service will help rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your residential, commercial or agricultural property for six months at a time, or your money back.
