Why Red Imported Fire Ants Love Lakeland, FL
Lakeland is the westernmost city in Polk County, Florida, and is situated along I-4 between Orlando and Tampa.
There are 38 named lakes found in the city, including Lake Parker, Lake Hollingsworth, Lake Morton, Lake Mirror, Lake Gibson, and others that are unnamed. And, like most other parts of Florida, the area experiences humid subtropical weather throughout the year and abundant thunderstorms throughout the summer.
The sunshine, humidity, and water combine to create the perfect home for fire ants! They love to build nests in open, sunny areas like meadows, pastures, parks, playgrounds, lawns, and golf courses, as well as in wilderness areas and on agricultural land, all of which are abundant in Lakeland.
What Can Be Done About Fire Ants?
It can be a never-ending problem to protect people, animals, property, and plants from attacks by red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta). The best way to successfully control them is to kill their colonies from the inside out.
Fire Ant Control, LLC is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on any type or size of land. Unlike many topical treatments that could permanently damage your soil and grass, the bait we use goes straight to the source.
To eliminate a fire ant colony, the queen must be killed, and, in multi-queen colonies, all queens must be killed. If the queens are not killed, the colony will most likely reestablish itself in a nearby area.
With our proven treatment, worker ants will carry the bait granules into the depths of the colony to the queen, the sole reproducer of the colony. Once the queen has been sterilized, the ants die off naturally and are not replaced with new ants. The entire colony will die off within weeks.
Fire Ant Control is capable of treating up to 1,000 acres per day. The bait we use is regulated and approved for use on public and private lands and approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hayfields, and farmland. Our services are fully licensed and insured and 100% guaranteed to help control your fire ant infestations.
Consider the number of backyards, playgrounds, parks, golf courses, athletic facilities, and horse property in Lakeland, FL. With treatment twice a year from Fire Ant Control, LLC, your property can be 95% free of fire ants. Call us at (239) 244-1436 for a free estimate!
