The best way to control an infestation of fire ants in Sebring, FL, is to take advantage of the proven treatment solution from Fire Ant Control, LLC.
Though not native to North America, the red imported fire ant has become a nuisance throughout the southern United States, ranging from Florida to California and as far north as Oklahoma and Virginia.
The key to controlling them is to sterilize the queen, and Fire Ant Control, LLC, offers the most effective way to protect yourself and your property.
Fix Your Fire Ant Problem Now
Fire Ant Control, LLC’s potent, food-like granular bait contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the colony’s queen and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hayfields, and farmland. We can treat up to 1,000 acres per day.
Unlike other topical treatments, our granular bait goes straight to the source. Worker ants eat the bait and carry it down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Once the queen has been sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
Because fire ants fly, they will eventually move back in. With two treatments a year from Fire Ant Control, LLC, however, your property can be 85% to 95% free of fire ants for six months at a time.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Fire Ant Treatment
- Why do fire ants love Sebring, Florida?
Sebring is part of the Florida Heartland region in Central Florida and is surrounded by dozens of freshwater lakes. Like most of Florida, it has humid subtropical weather and abundant thunderstorms throughout the summer. All of these factors combine to create a paradise for fire ants who flourish in sunny, humid, open areas like meadows, pastures, parks, lawns, golf courses, and wilderness areas.
- Why are red fire ants so harmful?
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are the worst of all fire ant species because they reproduce rapidly, do extensive damage, and are more aggressive than other species, attacking people and animals, and damaging gardens and crops, air-conditioning equipment, cement slabs, and electrical wires.
- How many fire ants live in a single colony?
Thousands of fire ants live in just one fire ant colony. If your property is infested with single queen colonies, there may be 40 to 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. If infested with multiple queen colonies, you may have 200 or more mounds and up to 40 million red fire ants per acre.
- Can home remedies get rid of fire ants?
Homeowners often try do-it-yourself home remedies in an effort to control fire ants. You may succeed at killing the fire ants you can see or cause them to relocate their colonies, but the only way to eliminate a fire ant problem is to kill the egg-laying queen, something home remedies are unable to do.
