Protecting Penned Animals from Fire AntsRed imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are the worst of all fire ant species because they reproduce very quickly, are more aggressive than other species, and have an extremely painful venomous sting that can cause serious medical problems. Fire Ant Control, LLC can help exterminate them.

Fire Ant Control, LLC is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants. Careful application of our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.

Fire Ants and Penned Animals

Animals in pens, cages, and kennels are particularly vulnerable to menacing red imported fire ants.

Fire ants have been known to sting, and even kill, small animals, particularly those that are very young and older animals that are unable to move out of harm’s way.

The ants are also drawn to weak animals with wounds or open sores, and will readily sting the abdomen, legs, and areas of the body with little or no hair, such as the eyes, nose, ears and muzzle. They are also attracted to many types of animal feed, such as dry dog food and livestock feed.

Some animals, such as adult chickens, will eat fire ants and not experience stings. However, the ants routinely attack hatching eggs, baby chicks, and injured fowl, especially those in coops with no means of escape.

The key to controlling these troublemaking red fire ants is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage they can cause.

Professional Fire Ant Control

Treating individual fire ant mounds can be expensive, requires time and effort to find all the mounds, and smaller mounds can be easily overlooked.

Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around!

The food-like granular bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen and is approved for use around people, pets and livestock. With our precise application rates, the bait falls to the ground where few living things other than ants will encounter it.

Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the worker ants have eaten the bait, carried it down into the colony and sterilized the queen, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.

Our bait has no re-entry interval, which means that you, your family, your pets and other animals can walk anywhere on the property immediately following treatment.

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 four months at a time, or your money back. With an application every four months, our treatment will help prevent further fire ant colonization.
