Fire Ant Control & Treatment in Dundee, FL
Fire Ant Control, LLC, is a single source for property owners in Dundee, FL, to secure effective, effortless, and affordable fire ant control and treatment. By targeting the source of the population, we’re able to manage the population of pesky and painful fire ants.
The red imported fire ant hails from South America, and the species finds the southern US conducive to its survival without the natural competition for resources in its native land. Florida, in particular, offers sun, warmth, food, and moisture, with the only limiting agent being Fire Ant Control, LLC.
Managing the colony’s population at its source – the queen – stops the propagation of the population, so that is what the bait we use targets.
How Our Process Works
Fire Ant Control, LLC, applies granular bait perceived as food by the red imported fire ants. In actuality, it is an insect growth inhibitor that stops the queen from reproducing when she eats it. As the living fire ants expire, the population zeros out without new citizens of the colony being hatched.
The bait we use is approved for applications around people, livestock, pets, etc. We collaborate with our sister companies to meet the needs of the entire quarantined area in the Southeast US, servicing as many as 1,000 acres per day.
After treatment, your property will be a minimum of 85% free of fire ants for four months at a time. In time, fire ants will return because they travel. We urge clients to reschedule treatment every four months to maintain up to 95% freedom from fire ant infestation.
Why Treat for Red Imported Fire Ants
Red imported fire ants are scientifically known as Solenopsis invicta and are non-native, harmful, and damaging creatures. They reproduce quickly and survive overwhelming challenges making managing the population difficult with most existing measures. Fire Ant Control, LLC, has the best method.
One colony of fire ants can house millions of red imported fire ants. Colonies with one queen can have up to 7 million fire ants on one acre, and colonies with more than one queen can host up to 40 million fire ants per acre.
Surface treatments are entirely ineffective against fire ants because most of the population works underground, building the colony. Eventually, without treatment, the colony will extend into areas where you don’t want them – like your laundry room, pantry, under your home’s foundation, and within your wiring system.
Avoid purchasing sprays from home improvement stores that will cost too much and could even be dangerous to the ecosystem and the respiratory health of residents and neighbors. Call Fire Ant Control, LLC, rather than spending money and effort on a “solution” that will not resolve the problem.
The bait applied by Fire Ant Control, LLC, is approved for use on properties with people and animals with no term required for re-entry. Treatments applied three times per year will keep your property safe from the scourge of injury and damage caused by red imported fire ants.
