You May Have Fire Ants If…
- You see round, flattened mounds of loose soil in lawns, around stumps and trees, or under cement slabs and sidewalks, and particularly several days after a heavy rain.
- You disturb the mound, even accidentally, and see red and black worker ants aggressively rising up from beneath the mound and attacking anything standing above or near it.
- A sting or bite gives you an intense burning sensation and, within a day or so, forms a white fluid-filled pustule or blister at the sting site. Red fire ant venom is the only fire ant venom that causes this symptom.
To eliminate a fire ant colony, the queen must be killed and, in multi-queen colonies, all queens must be killed. If they survive, the colony will most likely establish itself in a nearby area.
The granular bait we use goes straight to the source. Worker ants ingest the bait and carry it into the depths of the colony to the queen, the sole reproducer of the colony. Once the queen has been sterilized, the ants die off naturally and are not replaced with new ants.
The entire colony will die off within weeks. However, because they fly, the fire ants will eventually come back. We recommend treating your property three times a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
The Fire Ant Control Solution
Pastures & Horse Farms: Protecting your horse pasture and livestock from harm can be a challenge. Fire ant bites can be deadly to injured horses, unborn foals (if the mother is stung), newborns, penned or corralled animals, and old animals that cannot move out of harm’s way. Calf and cow injuries and deaths often increase during hot summer months when the fire ants are starved for moisture and food.
Golf Courses: Golf courses are irresistible to fire ants and a potentially dangerous hazard for golfers. When a mound is disturbed, the ants swarm out and sting “intruders” within seconds. They can also wreak havoc with lights, irrigation equipment and transformer boxes. Fire Ant Control’s effective, long-lasting treatment is the ideal solution for killing fire ants on your golf course.
Parks & Recreation Areas: Red imported fire ants are capable of causing great pain to children and adults when they bite or sting, and can be particularly dangerous in parks. Whether you are a private land owner or a municipal organization, Fire Ant Control, LLC, can help you control the problem in your park or recreational area.
