Understanding the Problem with Fire Ant Infestations
Red imported fire ants are far from just another ant species; they are the worst fire ant species in terms of aggressiveness, injury, damage, and survival rates. The species has no natural competition for resources in the US since it’s an invasive species hailing from South America.
When red imported fire ants attack, their unique venom creates a response that manifests as a hard blister with a white center that hurts badly. Their aggressive nature causes a simultaneous attack at any perceived threat. An army of fire ants will stream from the mound and attack in unison, biting and stinging. Some people have an even more severe reaction because they have an allergy bad enough to cause anaphylaxis. Ensure that you monitor any victim of a fire ant attack for signs of this painful and life-threatening issue.
Management of fire ant populations is complicated because their survival instincts allow them to overcome challenges. Red imported fire ants never stop reproducing and extending their colony.
Fire ants build mounds above ground, but most of the colony lives and works below ground. Treatment measures that target fire ants on the surface are never successful because reproduction and growth continue unaffected.
The colony itself is made up of millions of fire ants. A single queen colony holds up to 7 million, and a multiple queen colony holds up to 40 million. Those numbers are per acre!
Property damage due to red imported fire ants can be devastating. From your home’s foundation to its HVAC system, landscaping, wiring, and even the Pop-Tarts in your pantry, your property is at risk to fire ants.
