How to Extinguish Fire Ants

Learn how to extinguish an infestation of dangerous, pain-inflicting red imported fire ants on your residential, commercial or agricultural property with professional pest management services from Fire Ant Control, LLC.

How to Extinguish Fire AntsRed imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are the worst of all fire ant species because they reproduce quickly, do extensive damage, and are more aggressive than other species.

Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around. We are recognized specialists in controlling red fire ants on any size or type of land.

You May Have Fire Ants If…

  • You see flattened dome-shaped mounds of loose soil in lawns, around rotten logs and trees, or under cement slabs and sidewalks, particularly just following a heavy rain.
  • You disturb the mound, even inadvertently, and see dozens to hundreds of reddish-brown worker ants aggressively rise up from beneath the mound and attack anything around them.
  • 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.

A lack of noticeable mounds may make you think that you haven’t been infested with fire ants or that they’re under control, but don’t be fooled. They are most likely there… and increasing the size of their colony.

Properties 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!

Kill Fire Ants from the Inside Out

The key to eliminating red fire ants is to kill the colonies from the inside out by sterilizing the queen(s).

Fire Ant Control, LLC is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on any size or type of land. The potent, food-like granular bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland.

Worker ants eat the bait, carry it down into the colony where they share it with other ants, and the entire ant population dies naturally.  Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear within weeks, and no new ants will be born.

Fire Ant Control’s proven treatment works for properties ranging from small residential lots to thousands of acres. We guarantee it will rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your property for four months at a time, or your money back.

Our bait is regulated and approved for use on public and private lands. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that are short-lived (only killing surface ants), sometimes dangerous, and very expensive.

Our fully licensed and insured services will protect you from potentially lethal fire ant bites and stings, preserve the beneficial native ant populations on your property, and shield your plants, crops, machinery, and electrical equipment from these destructive insects.

Red imported fire ants are hard-working architects, and even floods won’t drown or deter them! Find out how Fire Ant Control, LLC can help you extinguish them. Call us today at (239) 312-8200 for a free estimate!
