How Do You Treat Fire Ant Mounds?
If you are battling red imported fire ants on your property, how should you treat the fire ant mounds? Don’t try it yourself; instead, consider treatment from Fire Ant Control, LLC. We can help protect your residential, agricultural or commercial property from damage and destruction and are capable of treating up to 1,000 acres per day.
Fire Ant Control, LLC, headquartered in Bokeelia, Florida, and our sister companies, serve the entire imported fire ant quarantine area of the southeastern U.S. Our proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. The potent granular bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally.
While bait products may seem expensive, they are extremely effective at killing the egg-laying queens and provide longer-term control than many other solutions. This makes our proven treatments extremely affordable in the long run.
About Fire Ant Mounds
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. You’ll see them in backyards, lawns, pastures, parks, playgrounds and golf courses, in agricultural land and wilderness areas, around stumps and trees, and under cement slabs and sidewalks.
Fire ants are amazing architects. These mounds are their nests, which they build by pushing up soil as they tunnel in the earth, preferably in open, sunny areas. The oval-shaped mounds are about as wide as a dinner plate, about 10 inches tall, and have no visible openings. The colony of ants lives beneath these mounds in an elaborate network of interconnected underground tunnels that extend outward and downward.
Mounds work somewhat like solar roof panels. They keep temperatures warm enough for the fire ants to produce new eggs at cooler times of the year. However, when the soil warms up, such as in summer, they just continue expanding their colonies right under your feet, sight unseen.
Treatment for Residential Properties
Your yard should be a relaxing place that is free of fire ant infestations, but when gardening, pruning, mowing or sweeping outdoors, you risk being attacked by fire ants. You should never have to worry that your children, your grandchildren, or your pets will be harmed. Our reliable residential fire ant killer can help.
Treatment for Commercial Properties
Fire ants are bad for business. Their stings can be a menace to your customers and employees. They like to nest along the edges of sidewalks and driveways and may build mounds next to your building, causing expensive damage to electrical equipment, such as air conditioning equipment. Take advantage of our commercial fire ant control service to protect your business from losing customers and revenue.
Treatment for Golf Courses, Parks & Recreation Areas
Fire ants can cause great pain to children and adults when they bite or sting, and are particularly dangerous in parks, playgrounds and athletic fields. If you operate a golf course, fire ants find them irresistible. 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.
