What Are Fire Ants?
Fire ants are small ants appropriately red in color. They are an invasive species that are not originally native to Florida. They were brought here to America sometime in the 1930's on merchant vessels coming from South America. Florida's warm climate has unfortunately allowed them to thrive abundantly here in our state. While their activities tend to slow down during the colder months, fire ants are considered a year round pest because our temperatures here in Tampa Bay are not cold enough to kill them in winter.
Fire ant nests are very noticeable. A typical nest consist of a dirt mound around three feet wide and up to a foot tall. A nest this size can be home to over half a million fire ants. If these nests are not properly managed, several nests can start to pop up in a single yard and quickly grow out of control.
How To Control Fire Ants
If you see fire ant mounds on your lawn, your first instinct may be to use over the counter insecticides to help solve the problem. However, fire ants are tough and while there are a few solutions that work, many can actually cause the colonies to split and turn a bad problem into something much worse.
Your best method for fighting fire ants is to call the fire ant control experts at Super D Pest Control and let us take over. With several years of experience fighting termites, roaches and other Florida pests, we can easily take care of your fire ant problem pain free.
How Dangerous Are Fire Ants?
Fire ants have a very strong venom. While extremely painful, a bite will not do any major damage. However, for those that are allergic a bite can bring extreme swelling and anaphylaxis, which can be deadly if medical treatment isn't obtained immediately. Some eye opening facts about fire ants include:
Fire ants are extremely aggressive insects and will attack with the slightest disturbance
One fire ant queen ant will lay approximately 1,500 eggs per day
Fire ant nests can exist under ground beneath sidewalks and your driveway
Millions of people are bitten by fire ants every year
