Overcoming Red Imported Fire Ants
Red imported fire ants are ubiquitous in this area because the environment is ideal for their reproduction and expansion. Anywhere with access to water, warmth, and food welcomes fire ants, so residential yards, pastures, golf courses, and any other open space is vulnerable, as are sidewalks, concrete slabs, HVAC systems, trees, crops, etc.
Fire ants constantly build upon the network of tunnels and their population numbers. The only visible signs of their presence are the mounds that provide fire ants a place to enter and exit the colony while also regulating the temperature within the colony. The rest of the action occurs below ground. When colonies perceive a threat, swarms of red imported fire ants will attack whatever is near.
A red imported colony consists of worker ants and queens. The workers have a few jobs – taking care of the queen and her eggs and larvae, hunting for food and water, and protecting the colony and the queen.
The Measures of Fire Ant Control, LLC
Fire Ant Control, LLC, offers an effective solution to the problem of a fire ant infestation. The solution relies upon a granular bait and a strategic placement of that bait. Compared to alternative fire ant treatments, ours has a greater success rate, maintains the population reduction longer, and costs less in the long run.
The Fire Ant Control, LLC, bait operates deceptively. Fire ants think the bait is food and carry it to the queen deep within the colony. The bait, an insect growth inhibitor, causes the queen to become infertile. Without a new generation of fire ants, the colony’s population dies off within a single life cycle of about 22-38 days. The result will be a minimum of 85% reduction in the population of fire ants on the property.
Approved for use on private and public properties, around animals, people, and crops, the bait doesn’t involve chemicals that target mounds or dangerous chemicals that could travel downwind.
Since the potency and presence of the bait will diminish and red imported fire ants expand into new areas as the winged males and females mature, reapplication is essential every four months for the property to remain protected.
