A Brief Introduction to the Enemy – Red Imported Fire Ants

Fire Ant Control & Treatment in Lockhart, FLSolenopsis invicta, the government name for red imported fire ants, wreaks havoc across the Southeast US. Today, their invasion has spread across the country’s southern half and continues to expand. They lack competition for resources and habitat space, so their spread continues unchecked. 

If you’re wondering why the invasion is a problem, you may be new to the area, so let us explain. Fire ants hurt! They can bite and sting at the same time, holding on while injecting their unique venom. This venom causes pain, inflammation, and itching, as well as a blister with a hard white center. For some victims, the venom can trigger an extremely severe allergic reaction that can cause death without medical intervention. 

If this pain wasn’t reason enough that we and fire ants can’t just all get along, consider the physical damage that they cause. When they nest in an area, they consume the nearby vegetation, destroy tree roots, damage home foundations and other structural components, and more. An unchecked fire ant population can literally cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property.

Fire ant populations are challenging to control because their reproductive potential is explosive. A single acre of land infested with multi-queen colonies may hold up to 40 million fire ants. Since queens lay new eggs daily, how do you cut down the population without stopping her? The simple answer is you can’t.

Fire Ant Control, LLC, stops her from reproducing any further.

We spread an insect-growth regulator that ants see as bait. They carry it to the queen, destroying their colony’s future. The irony of being destroyed by what they see as a tribute is almost Shakespearean in its beauty!

This measure works within a single life cycle and will keep the property at least 85% free of fire ants for four months at a time. It works better than flooding the mound, sprays, and other treatment options you might read about or have performed by landscapers.

The war against fire ants is one you need to win if you own property in the area. Call on us if you welcome patrons to an establishment or wish to watch your children play and walk to your mailbox without worries. Fire ants attack without much provocation, all swarming and attacking in unison. 

Our bait doesn’t require a period that you have to wait before re-entering the property, nor does the bait pose a danger to people or animals.

Fire Ant Control, LLC, measures may not work immediately, but they sure are effective. With follow-up every four months, we offer a money-back guarantee. Your property will remain 85-95% free of red imported fire ants, or we will return our fees.
