We use an effective method that works for six months at a time and poses no risk to humans, vegetation, pets, or livestock.
What Happens If You Ignore the Problem?
Doing nothing about imported red fire ants on your property is always an option. You can take the bites and allow the ants to continue reproducing, but there will come a time when they invade your living space. Cracks in your home’s foundation, a damaged HVAC system, and dead trees are just a few of the risks. What about when your children sneak crackers into their rooms and the ants follow?
Don’t wait for kids or your postal worker to be attacked! Handle the situation proactively by calling us.
The trouble with knowing when to call is that fire ants are deceptive and resilient. The majority of the colony lives underground, safe from sprays and poisons. When flooded out, they form a protective ball around their queen and float to dry land. They have no natural limitations since they’re non-native, so management methods need to be sneaky.
Fire ants are known for their unique venom that causes painful inflammatory responses to bites and stings. These attacks rarely occur only once; most of the time, fire ants attack as a group.
The Fire Ant Management Method That Works
Fire Ant Control, LLC, makes managing fire ant populations effortless. We use the Trojan Horse method to do so by way of a granular bait that ants perceive to be food. They carry the bait into the colony and serve it to the queen. She consumes the bait, which happens to be a growth inhibitor, and becomes sterile. Within one month, the existing population will die, leaving no replacements. This method effectively minimizes the fire ant population by 85% and works for six months at a time.
Deemed safe for use around animals and people, the Fire Ant Control, LLC, bait is appropriate for all properties. Whether you want to keep fire ants out of your horse’s hay, your business’s parking lot, or your children’s play area, call on us. You’ll have no wait time for re-entry but will see a marked reduction in fire ants.
