Battling red imported fire ants on your Venice, Florida property? Let Fire Ant Control, LLC get rid of them for you. We provide the most effective and affordable fire ant solution for homeowners and businesses throughout Southwest Florida.
Venice has been voted by Coastal Living Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns.” Fire ants are happy here, too, thanks to all the sunshine, warmth, humidity, and water!
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. We can help you keep these troublemakers under control.
Fire Ants at Parks & Athletic Fields
If you’ve encountered just a few fire ants or mounds at your community parks or athletic fields, you may think 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!
Fire Ants on Golf Courses
Golf courses are also irresistible to fire ants. They love the rich, moist soil and open, sunny expanses. They are a bothersome and potentially dangerous hazard for golfers. Whether standing for a shot or reaching for a ball, hundreds of fire ants can swarm out of a mound and sting within seconds.
The Fire Ant Control Solution
Fire Ant Control, headquartered in Bokeelia, Florida, is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on any size or type of land. Careful application of our potent, food-like granular bait kills the ant colonies from the inside out.
The bait 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.
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.
Because fire ants fly to mate and start new colonies, they will eventually come back. We recommend treating your property twice a year to prevent further fire ant re-colonization.
Our fully licensed and insured services will protect you from potentially lethal fire ant bites and stings, preserve the beneficial native ant populations on your property, and shield your plants, crops, machinery, and electrical equipment from these destructive insects.
We guarantee our treatment will rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your residential, commercial or agricultural property for six months at a time, or your money back.
