Solenopsis invicta, commonly called red imported fire ants, are a vicious insect species. They will aggressively attack people, pets, livestock, and even vegetation. Their nesting behavior can destroy HVAC systems, home foundations, electric wiring, and even your flowerbeds, gardens, and crops.
If a red imported fire ant has bitten you, you’ve likely been bitten by a swarm. They attack collectively and emit a unique venom that causes a hard blister with a white center and even anaphylaxis in some victims.

The Attraction of Red Imported Fire Ants to Haines City, FL
Haines City lies six miles south of Interstate 4, the primary highway in central Florida. This interstate highway leads to Ontario to the east and Lakeland to the west.
The humidity, warmth, and sun exposure of Haines City manifest an ideal haven for red imported fire ants. These ants will colonize practically any location – including pastures, parks, meadows, lawns, golf courses, and pretty much any other location. When they set up their nests, pain and damage will soon follow.
When properties are infested with fire ant colonies with one queen, each acre of your property likely has between 40-150 mounds and around 7 million red imported fire ants. Colonies with more than one queen produce upwards of 200 mounds and up to 40 million red imported fire ants – per acre! Average fire ant treatments do little against the mass of the population.
Go with an Established Fire Ant Treatment
A proven fire ant control method comes from Fire Ant Control, LLC. We utilize a strong bait that resembles food to the fire ants, and this bait decimates the red imported fire ant population from the inside.
When the bait is taken down into the colony, it behaves as a Trojan Horse. The queen consumes the bait and becomes sterile. As existing ants die, the colony’s population dwindles to nothing, with no fire ants to replace them.
Our methods work better than sprays and chemical insecticides. These agents target surface ants and leave the mound to reproduce, and the chemicals can be dangerous.
Red imported fire ants are mobile. They fly to mate and drop down to create new colonies. They’ll also hitch a ride on animals and within crates of crops. For this reason, our treatment needs to be repeated three times per year to help avoid recolonization.
