About Fire Ants & Their Colonies
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are native to South America. They are the worst of all fire ant varieties because they reproduce rapidly, are more aggressive than other species, and have a very painful venomous sting that can cause serious medical problems.
These destructive and dangerous ants adore moist land, so Hillsborough County is right up their alley. Favorite nesting grounds include open, sunny areas, and their mounds are commonly found around stumps and trees, in rotting logs and under sidewalks, as well as in lawns, parks, playgrounds, golf courses, athletic fields, meadows, pastures, and cultivated fields.
Fire ants build nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live underneath them in an elaborate network of subterranean tunnels where they reproduce rapidly. Even when you don’t see them, they are expanding right under your feet, and thousands of them can live in a single colony.
Colonies consist of 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.
Fortunately, Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around!
The Fire Ant Control Solution
Fire Ant Control’s proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
The worker ants ingest the potent bait and carry it down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that only kill surface ants, are sometimes dangerous, and are very expensive.
Because fire ants fly away from their colony to mate, they will eventually come back. Therefore, we recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
