Effective Fire Ant Management
Red imported fire ants are as common in Florida as sunny skies and warm temperatures. The climate and vegetation create an ideal environment for fire ants to thrive, but we at Fire Ant Control, LLC, offer control measures that work on any size or type of property.
The control methods we use consist of targeted placement of food-like granular bait. This bait operates as an insect growth inhibitor, so the queen cannot lay eggs after she eats it. Regulated and approved for use around people and animals, the bait is placed in a targeted fashion to ensure it works as efficiently as possible.
Since our methods don’t focus on surface ants, you won’t get the immediate satisfaction of seeing the carnage of dead fire ants. We focus our efforts on the queen, the source of reproduction. As the worker ants take the bait to the queen and she stops being able to propagate the colony, the population dwindles significantly as the living ants die.
Ultimately, this process will require about a month for peak results, but those results will remain for four months. With repeat treatment three times yearly, properties will remain up to 95% free of fire ant populations.
Fire Ant Control, LLC, treats a range of property types, including:
- Residential lawns
- Park and rec spaces
- Agricultural properties (farms and ranches)
- Golf resorts
- Plant and tree nurseries
- Commercial businesses
- Apartment complexes
- Municipal properties
Essential Fire Ant Management
Knowing that our fire ant methods work is only half of the equation. You also need to understand why it matters.
Red imported fire ants cause damage to property and injury to victims of their attacks.
When fire ants colonize property, the populations will continue to expand if they go unchecked. Eventually, this expansion will enter your home, eat your pop tarts, and ruin your wiring. Fire ants can also crack your home’s foundation, wreck your HVAC system, and kill vulnerable trees and landscaping. The only way to prevent this damage is to control the fire ant presence on your property.
To people and pets, fire ants are similarly dangerous. They attack aggressively, biting and stinging at the same time. As they sting, they inject a venom that only they have. This venom creates a hard blister with a white center that will last about a week and is incredibly painful. Washing the areas immediately can mitigate the pain, but watch out for allergic reactions, especially with children. A small percentage of the population may experience an anaphylactic reaction that requires immediate medical intervention.
Preventing injury requires the elimination of the threat. Fire Ant Control, LLC, services will ensure your lawn is safe for gardening, playing, barbecuing, or simply checking the mailbox.
