Animal Friendly Fire Ant Control
Can animals be harmed by imported red fire ants? Absolutely! However, the proven animal-friendly treatment from Fire Ant Control will help protect your pets, livestock, family and friends from potentially lethal bites and stings, and preserve the beneficial native ant populations on your property.
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are known to attack people and animals, and can cause extensive damage to gardens and crops, air-conditioning equipment, cement slabs, and electrical wires. They have a very painful venomous sting that can cause serious health problems.
Fire Ant Control, LLC is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on properties ranging from small residential lots to thousands of acres. Careful application of our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
Animals and Toxic Chemicals
It’s possible to treat fire ant mounds with liquid insecticide products or chemical dusts and granules. These synthetic chemicals can be poured into or spread around the mounds and may successfully kill some of the ants. This temporary treatment, however, will not eliminate the ant colony, and the chemicals can be toxic to people, pets and livestock.
Animal noses consist of a moist, mucous membrane. As they poke around your yard, lay around a treated area, graze, or lick their fur, they can easily absorb, inhale and ingest toxic chemicals. They may also eat rodents, insects, or other animals that have become riddled with ant-killing chemicals.
Minimize the damage to your animals’ kidneys, liver, lymph nodes, and central nervous systems from toxic chemicals, by implementing a more effective fire ant treatment.
A Permanent Solution
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. Our potent, food-like granular bait is ingested by worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally.
Our treatment is superior to sprays and insecticides that kill only surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive. We guarantee that it will rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your property for four months at a time, or your money back.
Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the worker ants have eaten the bait, carried it down into the colony and sterilized the queen, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born. Within weeks, your property will be protected and, with an application every four months, our treatment will help prevent further fire ant colonization.
Our bait has no re-entry interval, which means that you, your family, your pets and other animals can walk anywhere on the property immediately after treatment has been applied.
