Red imported fire ants are non-native to the United States. Known in the scientific community as Solenopsis invicta, these red imported fire ants come from South America. Their reproduction cycle is rapid, and they attack quite aggressively, emitting a painful, unique venom that hurts quite badly, causes a blister, and can trigger an anaphylactic reaction.
Fire ants commonly attack at the slightest disturbance. People, animals, and even plants aren’t protected from fire ant attacks. Their behavior and nesting patterns also mean damage for your home, foundation, HVAC, wiring, and beyond.
Management of red imported fire ants by Fire Ant Control, LLC is incredibly effective. We apply a strong bait that the ants believe to be food, infiltrating the colony and sterilizing the queen.
In a few short weeks, the area will be 85-99% free of fire ants and will remain that way for four months, at which time, another application will be required.
Spotting fire ants within your property is simple. If you see flat, round mounds, you’ve spotted their entrance and exit. Below ground, fire ants construct tunnels constantly, expanding as the population does. The mounds also serve as a space for solar warming.
Each colony below ground includes queens and workers. The queen is responsible for reproduction while the workers build the colony, scavenge for food, and defend the nest.
Some colonies have one queen, while others have multiple queens. When a colony has one queen, ants may reach 7 million per acre, and acreage with multiple queen colonies has 40 million red fire ants per acre.
It doesn’t take much to instigate an attack from red imported fire ants. Disturb a mound, and expect an army of fire ants to rise up and attack everything near it.
Fire Ant Management
The methods we use at Fire Ant Control, LLC are impressively effective. We use a bait that sterilizes the queen and causes the population to die at the end of the life cycle. With no new ants to replace them, the population is decimated. This process doesn’t work instantly, but it’s definitely effective.
We are a comprehensively licensed and insured fire ant regulator. Our bait has been approved for application around animals and people without a re-entry wait time.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, treatment is effective for four-month intervals. We suggest that you schedule service three times per year to keep the property 85-95% free of fire ants. Fire ants will fly and travel to create colonies, so they will eventually reinfest your property.
