Pine Island-based Fire Ant Control provides Everglades City Fire Ant Treatment services for residential, commercial, and agricultural properties.

Fire Ants are known for their aggressive behavior, attacking and swarming over anyone or anything that disturbs their nests. Wild animals, pets, and people often fall victim to these attacks and receive painful bites and stings in the process.

Two million Americans are allergic to insect stings, an allergy which sends more than 500,000 people to the emergency room annually.

Yet, according to a study published recently in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, while fire ant allergy sufferers know that allergy shots can save their lives, more than 60 percent do not adhere to treatment guidelines.

Fire Ants invade not just residential homes, but also athletic fields, golf courses, and parks, schoolyards, and recreational fields.

They damage crops and electrical equipment, and cause billions of dollars each year in repairs.

Fire Ant Dos and Don’ts:

  • DON’T: Buy chemicals from your local hardware store and attempt to treat Fire Ants on your own. Not only do you stand a good chance of being bitten or stung, but the chemicals you purchase can also be dangerous and difficult to store.
  • DON’T: Use home remedies like boiling water, instant grits, vinegar, ammonia, or drain cleaners. Home remedies just flat out don’t work. Even if they appear to be effective, looks can be deceiving. To completely eliminate a colony, it is necessary to kill the egg-laying queen(s).
  • DO: Take action. Fire Ants won’t just go away… In fact, they will spread and can quickly take over not just your lawn, but also impede on your walkways, driveways, and even affect the foundation of your home!
  • DO: Call a proven expert! Based on Pine Island, Fire Ant Control is Southwest Florida’s leading Fire Ant Treatment expert. Our safe, effective treatment only needs to be applied twice per year, and our application is quick.

Protect your pets!

Many people put food and water outdoors for their pets, without realizing this can easily attract foraging Fire Ants, who are attracted to the nutrients and protein in the food.

It is not uncommon for veterinarians to treat dogs and cats for Fire Ant stings. In some cases, Fire Ant attacks can prove fatal to smaller pets, or those with hypersensitivity to the venom!

If you care about your pets, make sure to contact a Fire Ant remediation specialist today!

We are careful to use the word “remediation” because complete Fire Ant eradication is not possible, since Fire Ants often relocate from adjacent properties and are a constant threat.

But recent advancements in technology and application methods have allowed treatment experts to provide homeowners with highly effective levels of management.

That’s where the professionals at Fire Ant Control can help.

The results speak for themselves!
