Red fire ants are attracted to sunshine, warmth, humidity, and moist land. They love humid environments and prefer watered lawns, golf courses, highway shoulders, lakeshores, and river banks to use as nesting grounds. In other words, Florida is an absolute paradise for these critters!
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. They are master architects, building and living in a vast network of interconnected underground tunnels that stretch outward and downward from the central mounds.
Fortunately, Fire Ant Control, LLC, is the best fire ant killer around! Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out. Our bait does not kill the ants immediately; instead, it is eaten by worker ants and taken to the queen inside the colony, where it sterilizes the colony (by sterilizing the queen). The ants that remain die off naturally.
The bait we use is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hayfields, and farmland. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that only kill surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive.
How Much Do You Know About Fire Ants?
- Although not native to North America, fire ants have become a nuisance throughout the southern United States, from Florida to California and as far north as Oklahoma and Virginia.
- Fire ants got their name from their red appearance, but they also earned it due to the burning associated with their painful bites!
- Fire ants build their nests outdoors in the ground. Their mounds of soil have no visible openings. They live underground in an elaborate network of tunnels that can reach as far as 25 feet away.
- The typical fire ant colony is home to one queen and 100,000 to 500,000 worker ants. Workers build the nests (mounds), care for the queen and her eggs, scavenge for food, and defend the colony from predators.
- The fire ant queen is the head of the colony. Her only purpose is to lay eggs– laying up to 1,500 eggs per day for up to seven years – to populate the colony. Once her colony is established, she never leaves it again.
- Fire ants eat food of both plant and animal origin. While they can eat almost anything, their usual diet comprises worms, insects, spiders, oils, reptiles, honeydew, and even small birds and mammals.
- Red imported fire ants attack people, plants, and animals. When their mounds are disturbed, hundreds of them will swarm out of the ground and aggressively sting invaders.
- Fire ants can also damage gardens and crops, cement slabs, air-conditioning equipment, and electrical wires.
