What’s So Bad about Fire Ants?
Ants are common enough, but red imported fire ants, known scientifically as Solenopsis invicta, are the most aggressive. These ants also reproduce quickly, live mostly underground, and leave a painful blister after attacks. As an invasive species, red imported fire ants tend to have little natural competition, so they’re tougher to manage.
We have the solution.

Southwest Florida’s Affinity for Fire Ants
Imported red fire ants love humidity and water, and Thonotosassa, FL, provides plenty of it. In addition to Thonotosassa Lake and the nearby Hillsborough River, there are several lakes and creeks in the area. All of this moisture attracts fire ants like a magnet. For an effective remedy, call on us here at Fire Ant Control, LLC.
Managing Fire Ants Effectively
It’s easy to underestimate the prevalence of fire ants on your property because most of the activity is unseen. These ants live in a network of subterranean tunnels that can hold millions of ants. A few mounds can indicate a very serious ant problem. In fact, a one-acre property with multi-queen colonies can hold up to 40 million imported red fire ants.
Managing the fire ant population is the only way to protect your children, pets, guests, and property from the injury and damage fire ants cause. The smallest disruption of a fire ant bed will cause hundreds of ants to attack viciously and simultaneously. The venom from red imported fire ants is quite painful and will leave a blister with a white pustule in the center. Anaphylactic reactions to this venom, while rare, do occur and require medical attention as quickly as possible.
In addition to injury, fire ants cause damage. They tend to nest around tree roots, under cement foundations, and even inside air conditioning units. They’re attracted to electrical components and areas they can climb during heavy rains, even coming inside homes.
Fire Ant Control, LLC, uses a granular bait that the workers ingest and carry down into the colony to the queen. She is then unable to reproduce, and the colony’s population dies out naturally with no new eggs to replace them. This method requires a few weeks to work, but it effectively limits the ant population by 85-95% for four months at a time. Our method is the absolute best way to control the fire ant population on a property.
