Do Fire Ant Bites Itch?
If you need to ask, “Do fire ant bites itch?” we know that you’ve been lucky enough to avoid them, and we at Fire Ant Control, LLC, would like to keep it that way.
Fire ant bites do more than itch. They itch, they burn, and in some instances, they cause allergic responses that can be deadly. If you or someone you’re around has been attacked, you should treat the area with soap, water, or alcohol. You should also keep an eye open to watch out that the person isn’t part of the 5% in danger of anaphylaxis.
The scientific name for imported red fire ants is Solenopsis invicta, but their street name, fire ants, comes from their appearance and the pain that follows an attack by them. These ants are more than pests; they attack for the slightest perceived threat and will build their homes almost anywhere. In the process, they’ll damage property, potentially costing thousands of dollars in repairs.
Whether you’re a homeowner, property manager, business owner, groundskeeper, or have another position that puts you in charge of taking care of a property, choose Fire Ant Control, LLC to handle any fire ant presence. We offer a money-back guarantee that the properties we treat will remain 85-99% free of fire ants for four-month periods.
Hard to Kill Fire Ant Populations
Fire ants love warmth, moisture, and food, no matter where they find them. Parks and playgrounds, yards, golf greens, pastures, and other areas are prime positions. Fire ants will also create their nests within HVAC systems, underneath concrete slabs, around the roots of trees and plants, and practically anywhere else, especially as population growth continues.
The population potential of fire ants is pretty amazing. One colony can hold 7 million fire ants with single-queen colonies, and that number explodes up to 40 million with multi-queen colonies.
Successful Fire Ant Treatment Measures
To successfully treat fire ants, you have to address the source of the population, but the queen is so protected; how do you get to her?
Fire Ant Control, LLC, uses an ingenious and strong granular bait that ants see as food. When scavenging ants discover the bait and carry it down to the queen, she becomes infertile, and the population dwindles to nothing as the living ants’ life cycle winds down.
This process doesn’t provide the immediate gratification that we all crave. Still, it is highly effective, working within a single life cycle and keeping the area 85-95% free of fire ants for four months. New queens will move in without re-treatment, and the problem will return.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, process and product are approved for use on properties with people and animals in residence. No wait time is required for re-entry, whether the land is zoned for residential, agricultural, public, or commercial use. We’re the right choice for any property in the area when fire ants pose a danger.
