About the Florida Heartland
La Belle is located in Hendry County, which is part of the Florida Heartland region that also includes DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands, and Okeechobee Counties. Unlike the coastal areas to the east and west, the region is primarily focused on agriculture, producing important products such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, cucumbers, sugarcane and beef.
How Fire Ants Affect Crops and Livestock
Red fire ants infest hundreds of millions of acres in the United States. The USDA predicts they will eventually make their homes across the south from coast to coast, where they already have a significant impact on farming activities, from crops to workers in the fields to vulnerable livestock.
Fire ants infest virtually all crops in southern states and continue to spread westward into California and northward along the east coast. They are voracious predators, extremely aggressive, often present in high densities, and can negatively affect crop production by attacking and consuming beneficial organisms.
The ants feed on the branches, new terminal growth, flowers, bark, young fruit, sap of tree crops, and are particularly attracted to electrical control units where they can cause equipment failures. They collect plant seeds, scattering them around their mounds and affecting plant distribution and abundance. Fire ant mounds also damage pickups, ATVs, and other farm equipment.
If that’s not enough, red fire ants also pose a serious threat to livestock, to caged and penned animals, to newborns if they lie down or are born on or near a mound, to weak animals that suffer from wounds or open sores, and those that are old and unable to move out of harm’s way. Their very painful venomous sting can cause serious medical problems for animals and humans.
Kill Fire Ants from the Inside Out
Fire Ant Control, LLC is the best fire ant killer around!
The bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland.
Worker ants eat the bait and carry it 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.
We guarantee that our fully licensed and insured service will help rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your residential, commercial or agricultural property for six months at a time, or your money back.
