Fire Ant Control & Treatment in Durant, FL
The battle for control of the fire ant population in your Durant, FL, property isn’t hopeless; choose Fire Ant Control, LLC, for effective and affordable treatment on all types of properties.
Red imported fire ants are scientifically known as Solenopsis invicta and were initially introduced into the US through the Port of Mobile in cargo from Brazil during the 1930s. These fire ants reproduce wildly, attack viciously, and inject a unique venom that is extremely painful and can be deadly for a small portion of the population.
At Fire Ant Control, LLC, with headquarters in Bokeelia, Florida, we offer an effective and straightforward management service to keep your fire ant population down by 85-95% with repeat treatments every four months.
Along with our sister companies, we can treat the entire Southeast region of the US, which is quarantined against the spread of fire ants. In fact, we’re able to treat up to 1,000 acres daily.
The Passion of Red Imported Fire Ants for Florida
The reasons you love your Florida home are the same ones that draw red imported fire ants to the area. The environment in Florida provides food, moisture, and space to build colonies. Since the survival and progression of the colony are the ultimate concerns of this species, they thrive here, and no property is safe from an infestation.
Red imported fire ants construct underground tunnels that house the millions-strong population. As time progresses, so does the colony. The queen’s only responsibility is to lay eggs and expand the population. At the same time, the rest of the fire ants serve as food gatherers, colony defenders, and caretakers for the queen, her eggs, and her larvae.
The queen’s lifespan can range from two to six years, and she lays between 1,500-5,000 eggs daily. These numbers demonstrate why the only way to manage the fire ant population is to address the survival of the queen.
We Target the Queen
Fire Ant Control, LLC, specializes in managing fire ant populations regardless of the acreage or category or the property. Our efforts work by targeting the queen in a way that other treatments cannot do effectively. We employ a granular bait that fire ants perceive to be food, and they carry down into the colony for the queen.
The queen becomes sterile when she ingests the bait. Without new fire ants being born, the population zeros out as the living ants expire.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, bait is well-regulated and approved for applications on properties around people and animals. We also hold comprehensive insurance and licensing and provide a money-back guarantee for properties that schedule retreatment three times per year.
Once the application is complete, the process requires only a few weeks to work. The process will keep the population 85-95% free of red imported fire ants, but since fire ants move, you will need to reschedule our service every four months to prevent reinfestation.
The measures we use to manage the populations of fire ants is a long-term treatment that surpasses all other options, making the cost worth the investment.
