About Fire Ants
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) build nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live beneath them in an elaborate network of subterranean tunnels where they reproduce rapidly. Even when you don’t see them, they are expanding beneath your feet, and thousands of them can live in a single colony.
Colonies consist of workers and queens. Workers build the nests (mounds), take care of the queen and her eggs, scavenge for food, and defend the colony. Queens can live for two to six years and have only one job – to lay from 1,500 to 5,000 eggs per day – which explains why fire ants multiply so quickly.
The favorite nesting grounds of fire ants include open, sunny areas, and their mounds are commonly found around stumps and trees, in rotting logs and under sidewalks, as well as in pastures, meadows, cultivated fields, lawns, parks, playgrounds, golf courses and wilderness areas.
Fire ants are known to attack people and animals, and have a very painful venomous sting that can cause serious health problems. They also cause extensive damage to gardens and crops, air-conditioning equipment, cement slabs, and electrical wires.
A Permanent Solution
Fire Ant Control, LLC provides a proven fire ant treatment that works for properties ranging from a single acre to thousands of acres. We provide exact application rates with a minimum of interference to your daily operation.
Our solution focuses on sterilizing the queen. With our precise application rates, the bait falls to the ground where few living things other than ants will encounter it. The bait is ingested by worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally, and no new ants will be born.
Fire Ant Control’s treatment is superior to sprays and insecticides that kill only surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive. With two treatments a year, your property can be 95% free of fire ants, and safer for your crops and livestock.
