Fire Ant Control, LLC, employs a proven granular fire ant bait, approved for use with agricultural areas, and backed by the best guarantee found in the industry. Whether you have half an acre or hundreds, even thousands, of acres of cattle land, count on us to manage your fire ant populations.
Fire Ants and Cattle
Red imported fire ants love the sunny freedom a pasture provides. They’re especially drawn to hay and grassy areas, creating hidden booby traps where they’ll attack as soon as disturbed. The bites and stings of these ants are particularly painful, and they generally attack all at once when the victim moves after the first sting. At times, this attack can cause an anaphylactic reaction, resulting in death without fast treatment.
When imported red fire ants become a problem, they’re a significant issue, infesting hay, stinging young calves, preventing grazing, and even attacking workers when they enter to feed, water, or care for animals. Newborn calves and aged animals are highly vulnerable to swarms of fire ants, especially since fire ant population densities can even reach 200 mounds on each acre of property.
Fire Ant Control Approved for Pasture Use
Fire ant baits aren’t all equal; some are approved for use in pastures, and some aren’t. Fire Ant Control, LLC, is the best fire ant killer that’s both approved for pasture use and effective. Reach out today for a free estimate and consultation!
Our granular baits don’t work on contact; instead, they work as measures of population control. On-contact poisons leave the queen alive, so new ants simply replace the dead ones. Fire Ant Control, LLC, uses baits that function differently.
When the worker ants carry the bait into the colony, the queens become sterile, unable to produce more eggs. As the living ants die, so goes the colony providing long-term ant control. This method of control is highly effective but doesn’t work immediately. It also requires regular treatments about every four months since ants migrate as evidenced by their behavior after heavy rain or with attempts at treating mounds.
While you could spin your wheels attempting to treat your pasture without professional help, why waste time and money? Give us a call at Fire Ant Control, LLC for a hands-free, guaranteed solution. We have the methods and materials that work.
