Red imported fire ants made their way into the US through the Port of Mobile in the 1930s. Hailing from Brazil, South America, red imported fire ants have traveled across the southern US. They love the warmth, plentiful food, and moisture, and without natural competition, the population explosion is unlimited. Allow Fire Ant Control, LLC, to provide you with peace of mind and protection from injury and property damage.
Red imported fire ants survive because they focus on the advancement of the colony, not the individual.
When they perceive a threat, they respond aggressively. A slight vibration will cause an eruption of fire ants from the mound, and they will climb up the nearest person or animal and attack simultaneously, biting and stinging. The unique venom of the red imported fire ants will leave a unique blister, and, in some of the population, the reaction can be anaphylactic and life-threatening.
Note the Presence of Red Imported Fire Ants
If you see fire ant mounds, you can be sure of an infestation. Unfortunately, many mounds are easily missed. The mounds are about 10” in diameter, can reach 12” high, and have flat tops. The purpose of the mounds is for entrance and exit, solar heating, and thermal stabilization. Most of the fire ant activity occurs below ground, where fire ants constantly build tunnels and grow the size of the colony and the numbers of the population.
Seeing red imported fire ants is another clue that a problem exists. The ant has a darker middle and bottom, and obviously, an attack with bites that feel like fire indicates the presence of red imported fire ants.
Fire Ant Control, LLC, provides coverage for the Southwest Florida area, but we cover the entire fire ant quarantine area with partnering companies. Our service capacity can reach up to 1,000 acres in a single day. Call us whether you have a small lot or thousands of acres of pastureland.
The method we use cuts off the population at its source: reproduction. The queen is the only source of continuation of the colony, so if she can no longer lay eggs, the colony ceases to exist. Our granular bait is an insect growth inhibitor that makes the queen infertile when she consumes it. It’s appealing to ants as food, so the treatment works effectively.
This solution works well in the long term, but it will require one complete life cycle to see full results. In addition, we require retreatment every four months. But, when you remain in compliance, your property will remain 85-95% free of fire ants.
We offer a money-back guarantee for our service.
