Fire Ant Control & Treatment in Cypress Lake, FL
In Cypress Lake, FL, Fire Ant Control, LLC, is the premier source for fire ant control & treatment. We offer effective, convenient, and affordable fire ant management for properties of all types in Southwest Florida.
The red imported fire ant, scientifically known as Solenopsis invicta, isn’t native to North America. This pesky and vicious insect found its way through the Port of Mobile in the early 1930s and found the Southeastern United States very welcoming. Today, the entire Southeast is under quarantine to control their spread.
Along with our sister companies, Fire Ant Control, LLC, treats the entire quarantined area, up to 1,000 acres each day.
Without natural competition for resources, fire ants have little to inhibit their population growth, so we are often the only solution to serious fire ant infestation issues. Standard DIY solutions that treat the mounds individually are not effective. They may kill a few hundred fire ants, but the colony’s growth in size and population will continue because the queen will keep replenishing the few fire ants that die.
Issues with fire ants extend to personal injury, property damage, and destruction of crops and livestock. Fire ant stings are painful, and some people have a serious allergy. The behavior of fire ants and how they construct tunnels underground is incredibly destructive. From home foundations to HVAC and wiring systems, fire ants’ quest for warmth and security leads to costly damage.
FYI – Fire Ant Control
Preventing issues with fire ants can help protect your children, pets, and livestock, as well as your property. In addition to booking service three times per year with Fire Ant Control, LLC, consider the following measures that can help you avoid fire ant infestations on your property:
- Feed animals just enough to leave no leftovers.
- Store seed and animal feed in airtight containers.
- Keep the lawn, animal pens, and other exterior spaces clean; debris, food, leaves, and other items attract fire ants with areas for food and refuge.
- Repair leaky pipes and spigots ASAP to avoid providing fire ants with a convenient and consistent water source.
FYI – The Fire Ant Control Solution
Fire Ant Control, LLC, offers an effective way to respond to fire ant infestations. Our techs will strategically place a robust and appealing bait around the property without leaving a mess. This regulated bait is approved for use around animals and people and operates as an insect growth inhibitor.
When the queen ingests the bait, she becomes sterile. Unable to reproduce any longer, the colony zeroes out after a single complete life cycle. With follow-up treatment every four months, properties remain up to 95% free of fire ants – or your money back.
As long as you schedule service three times per year, the area will remain at least 85% free of red imported fire ants, or we will return the cost of the treatment. Keep in mind that fire ants move frequently – to escape heavy rains, to seek out food, and to establish new colonies as the winged male and female fire ants mature.
