Looking to eliminate a fire ant infestation in your home’s landscape or your agricultural property?
Our Bonita Springs fire ant control service is designed to help protect both homeowners and agricultural property owners. Most homeowners, ranchers and farmers have had at least one painful experience with red imported fire ants. The experience is always unpleasant.
Public and private organizations have been working for decades to control or eliminate the populations of red imported fire ants (RIFA). The Fire Ant Control solution is a management centered strategy using a bait that the ants will ingest as well as carry back into the colony, so that the entire colony will ingest the bait.
Upon ingestion the queen becomes sterile and no longer produces offspring.
Experts agree that a complete lifecycle from egg to adult takes between 22 and 38 days. This means that within approximately a month’s time your property will be 85-95% free of fire ants. Your property will be safe for friends, family and agricultural activities.
Extermination is not instantaneous, but once the queen is no longer producing eggs the rest of the colony will die naturally and no further eggs will be produced.
Fire Ant Control retreats every six months to ensure that your property remains nearly free of fire ants.
As part of our management strategy, retreating is necessary as queens can fly. They will fly around seeking out un-infested properties to settle down and begin laying eggs to grow their colony.
So once we’ve rid your land of up to 99% of the fire ants, you’ll want to protect it from further infestation.
