The Dangers of Uncontrolled Fire Ant Populations
We all understand that fire ant bites and stings are painful. Did you know that fire ants have a unique venom particular to the species? Imported Red Fire Ants attack viciously, and their bites manifest in a red bump with a hard white center. If a person has an allergy or is attacked by enough ants, serious injury and even death can occur without medical intervention.
Fire ant behavior is interesting and is valuable knowledge for those who want to disrupt their population and avoid attack. Colonies of tunnels below ground are home to enormous fire ant populations, and the small plate-size mound above ground serves as the entrance, exit, and solar heating system. When disturbed, the mound will erupt with swarms of fire ants climbing upward and attacking simultaneously.
Taking care of fire ant bites requires that you clean the area with soap or rubbing alcohol, and should an allergic reaction occur, make use of an EpiPen® and head to the hospital.
Property like home foundations, electric equipment, and machinery all fall victim to the infiltration and nesting behavior of fire ants.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, Solution
The special granular bait we use is safe and effective at managing fire ant populations. Our expert application lures fire ants into carrying insect growth regulator down into the colony. When the queen ingests the bait, she becomes sterile, so the population expires as the living ants do.
Every six months you will need to call and schedule a reapplication of our bait. It won’t last forever, and your fire ant population will return without it.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, guarantee doesn’t promise that you will be 100% free of fire ants. They’re a mobile creature and could reappear, but we can promise that with application every six months, the population will be at least 85% under control. This level of management will keep your level of outdoor enjoyment and property protection assured.
