About Fire Ants & Golf Courses
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) infest more than 360 million acres across the southeastern U.S., California and New Mexico, and pose a serious public health threat, injuring over 20 million adults and children each year with their stings.
Thousands of fire ants live in just one colony. A property with single queen colonies may have 40 to 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.
Golf courses, with their fertile soil, high moisture content, and open, sunny areas, are irresistible to fire ants. They build their mounds around greens, bunkers, in the rough, around the bases of trees, and even nestled against rocks and other landscaping.
Fire ants can cause a world of hurt to unsuspecting golfers and spectators. Whether standing for a shot or reaching for a ball, hundreds of them can swarm out of a disturbed mound and sting in seconds. About 1 to 2 percent of people have a severe reaction that leads to anaphylactic shock and even death.
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. The oval-shaped mounds are about as wide as a dinner plate, about 10 inches tall, and have no visible openings. 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.
Fortunately, 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 bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally.
Our bait is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that only kill surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive
Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the worker ants have eaten the bait and carried it down into the colony, sterilizing the queen, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born. Within weeks, your property will be 85-95% free of fire ants.
