Why Red Fire Ants Love Plant City, FL
Plant City is located on Interstate 4 in northeastern Hillsborough County between Brandon and Lakeland. Like most other parts of Florida, it has humid subtropical weather and abundant thunderstorms throughout the summer. The city is known as the winter strawberry capital of the world.
All of the sunshine, warmth and humidity around Plant City combine to create a paradise for fire ants! Their favorite places to build their nests are open, sunny areas like meadows, pastures, parks, playgrounds, lawns and golf courses, as well as wilderness areas and agricultural land.
If your property has been infested with single-queen colonies, there are probably 40 to 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. If you have multiple-queen colonies, there may be 200 or more mounds and up to 40 million red fire ants per acre!
Choose a Proven Fire Ant Killer
Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around! Our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
The potent bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not immediate but, once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
The bait is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland. 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 the colony to mate, they will eventually come back. Therefore, we recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
