Many types of ants will invade your property and home, but few are genuine dangers like red imported fire ants. When fire ants are disturbed, they attack as a group, climbing, stinging, and biting simultaneously. The unique venom that only they possess leaves their victim with a large, red bump with a hard white center. In worst-case scenarios, these attacks can result in anaphylactic shock and death without fast medical intervention.
The combination of opportunistic nesting behavior and aggressiveness means that red imported fire ants are particularly dangerous. From your children playing to your afternoon golfing, feeding your animals, or simply checking your mail, red imported fire ants can spring forth unexpectedly.
Handling a fire ant problem without professional intervention is next to impossible. Purchasing DIY products at retail stores generally leaves you with a great deal less money and a product that targets only surface red imported fire ants, leaving those underground, and can be hazardous to those who are downwind from the spray.
To effectively handle an entire colony of red imported fire ants, you’ll need to target the queen or queens. Our granular bait does so. When the worker ants ingest the bait and carry it to the queen, she becomes unable to lay new eggs. Over the course of a few weeks, the living ants will die, and the colony as a whole will go with it.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, method maintains an 85% minimum freedom from the presence of fire ants for half of the year. After four months, you should schedule another treatment to secure our money-back guarantee.
The repeated application of granular bait every four months is essential because ants are mobile. Queens grow, fly to mate, and drop to establish a colony where they land. Fire ants also migrate in search of water and food, sources of warmth, and even avoidance of heavy rains.
Red imported fire ants are such a challenge due to a lack of natural competition. South America was the original home of the red imported fire ant. The species found its way into the US through the Port of Mobile in the 1930s, and in the time since, they have established healthy populations across the southern states of the country. They continue to thrive because of a lack of competition for resources as well as a natural inclination to nest in diverse areas and survive environmental hardships.
Moisture, warmth, water, and food are the basic demands of red imported fire ants. They will nest anywhere near these elements including your electrical components, home foundation, animal food stores, laundry piles, open yard spaces, and so forth.
Securing our service is as simple as placing a phone call to our customer service team. The granular bait that we use has been deemed safe for use around animals and people, and our processes don’t require great effort on your part.
