About Fire Ant Colonies
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) adore sunshine, warmth, humidity and moist land, and prefer watered lawns, golf courses, highway shoulders, lake shores and river banks as nesting grounds. In other words, the majority of Florida and the Southeastern United States is a tropical paradise for fire ants!
The telltale signs of fire ant colonies are round, flattened mounds of loose soil. They are master architects, building and living in a vast network of interconnected subterranean tunnels that extend outward and downward from these central mounds.
Within each colony are 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 lay from 1,500 to 5,000 eggs per day, which explains why fire ants multiply so quickly.
Outside of calling licensed pest management professionals like Fire Ant Control, there is no “best way” to kill fire ants. The key to controlling these troublemakers is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage they cause.
Say Goodbye to Your Fire Ants
To eliminate a fire ant colony, the queen must be killed. In multi-queen colonies, all queens must be killed. If they are not killed, the colony will most likely establish itself in another nearby area.
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen(s) by means of a potent, granular bait. Worker ants ingest the bait and carry it down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that are short-lived (only killing surface ants), sometimes dangerous, and very expensive.
The bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland. 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.
Your property will be nearly free of fire ants within weeks; however, because fire ants fly to mate, they may return. For this reason, we recommend having your property treated three times a year to prevent them from re-colonizing your property.
