Everything You Need To Know About Fire Ants

Fire Ants Will Destroy the Yard Around Your Home or Business

Fire ant colonies can grow anywhere across the United States, but due to the warm, dry climate of Northern Texas, they especially love Dallas-Fort Worth and its surrounding areas. A single fire ant colony might not sound like a big problem until you consider that a large colony of fire ants can have as many as 250,000 active and aggressive workers at one time!

Have you noticed:

  • Fire ants around your home or business?
  • Mounded piles of sandy earth on your property?
  • Complaints of people feeling stung while outside?
  • Felt like bugs were biting you as you tried to do yard work?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, then it’s possible that you have fire ants. Contact us now to schedule a time when we can come out and protect your home or business and the people who use them.

Protect Your Home, Business, and Property Before Fire Ants Infest Your Property.

When fire ants are found on your property, it is necessary to begin treatment at once. We offer the best preventative maintenance programs you can find for fire ants. After ridding your property of the current problem, we will continue noninvasive measures to prevent them from returning.

Our programs are safe for humans, pets, and wildlife around your property. Because our environmentally-friendly programs create very little disturbance, you can be sure that your home or business as well as the surrounding property will maintain the same aesthetic appeal it had before we arrived.

Should I Try to Eliminate Fire Ants Before Calling a Professional?

There are over the counter products that offer to eliminate fire ant colonies. These products will not prevent new colonies from returning to the property around your home. That is because the products do not target the eggs and larvae that grow into fully grown fire ants that re-infest your property.

The best way to eliminate fire ants is to attack each mound individually and then follow a plan to help prevent re-infestation. Our expert technicians can spot mounds and other hotspots in home or business to give you the peace of mind you deserve.

What Is the Best Way to Treat Stings and Bites From Fire Ants?

Fire ant bites and stings, like the sting from a bee, gnat, or other flying insect, has a small chance of causing an allergic reaction. Treat bites and stings from fire ants like you would if they happened from any other insect. If you experience excessive redness or swelling, experience shortness of breath, or begin to sweat profusely, then seek medical attention or dial 911 immediately.
