Known for its sunny and humid climate, North Port, Florida, located in Sarasota County, is paradise for red imported fire ants. Fire Ant Control is a recognized specialist in controlling them on any size or type of residential, agricultural or commercial land.
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are the worst of all fire ant species. They reproduce quickly, are more aggressive than other ants, and have an extremely painful venomous sting that can cause serious medical problems. Fortunately, Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around!
Careful application of our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out. Extermination is not instantaneous but, once the worker ants have eaten the bait and carried it down into the colony, sterilizing the queen, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born. Within weeks, your property will be nearly free of fire ants.
Our proven treatment works for properties ranging from small residential lots to thousands of acres, and the bait is regulated and approved for use on public and private lands.
Schools, Playgrounds & Athletic Fields
If you’ve encountered just a few fire ants or mounds on your school property, you may be thinking you have them under control. Think again! Single-queen colonies may have 40 to 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. Multiple-queen fire ant colonies may have 200 or more mounds and up to 40 million ants per acre!
Students, teachers and coaches on school playgrounds are the most likely to encounter fire ants, but they can also enter classrooms to forage for food and moisture, occasionally nesting in wall voids and rafters. They also infest machinery and electrical equipment and chew on insulation, causing short circuits in air conditioning, lighting and other mechanical equipment.
Parks & Recreation Areas
Red imported fire ants are capable of causing great pain to children and adults when they bite or sting and can be particularly dangerous in parks. This will certainly be a concern when the Atlanta Braves make North Port their spring training home in 2019.
When fire ant mounds are disturbed, even by accident, hundreds of them will swarm out of the ground and aggressively sting people and pets. Some people are allergic to the venom in the bite, and others may go into anaphylactic shock, a condition that requires urgent medical attention to prevent a deadly outcome.
