Red imported fire ants are hard-working architects, and even floods won’t drown or deter them. Learn how treatment by Fire Ant Control, LLC protects homes in Lee County, Florida from these destructive insects.
The best way to address fire ant stings and other problems in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and other parts of Lee County is to prevent the nasty insects in the first place. Headquartered in Bokeelia, Florida, Fire Ant Control, LLC, and our sister companies, serve the entire imported fire ant quarantine area of the southeastern U.S., and are capable of treating up to 1,000 acres per day.
Our proven fire ant treatment focuses on sterilizing the queen. The potent granular bait is ingested by the worker ants and carried down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that are short-lived (only killing surface ants), sometimes dangerous, and very expensive.
You May Have Fire Ants If…
- You see flattened dome-shaped mounds of loose soil in lawns, around rotten logs and trees, or under cement slabs and sidewalks, particularly just after a heavy rain.
- You disturb the mound, even accidentally, and see dozens to hundreds of reddish-brown worker ants aggressively rise up from beneath the mound and attack anything around them.
- A sting or bite gives you an intense burning sensation and, within 24 hours or so, forms a white fluid-filled pustule or blister at the sting site. Red fire ant venom is the only fire ant venom that causes this symptom.
A lack of noticeable mounds may make you think that you haven’t been infested with fire ants or that they’re under control, but don’t be fooled. They are most likely there… and increasing the size of their colony.
Properties with single-queen colonies may have 40 to 150 mounds and about 7 million red fire ants per acre. If infested with 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. 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.
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.
