Why Fire Ants Love the Gulf Coast
Collier County, which is located at the southern end of Florida’s stunning Gulf Coast, has a warm, temperate climate with significant rainfall throughout the year. In other words, it’s heaven for fire ants!
These troublemakers adore moist land. They love open areas that are exposed to direct sun, and prefer watered lawns, highway shoulders, pond shores and river banks as nesting grounds.
Kill Fire Ants from the Inside Out
To eliminate a fire ant colony, the queen must be killed, and all queens must be killed in multi-queen colonies. If the queens are not killed, the colony will typically move on to establish itself in a nearby area.
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out. With two treatments a year, your property can be 95% free of fire ants.
The bait we use contains an insect growth regulator (to sterilize the queen) and is approved for use around humans, animals, on pastures, hay fields, farmland, and on public and private lands.
Worker ants eat the bait and carry it down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not immediate but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
On private property, there is no re-entry interval, which means that you, your family, your pets and other animals can walk anywhere on the property immediately after a treatment has been applied.
Because fire ants fly, they will eventually come back. Therefore, we recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant re-colonization.
