Fire Ants

A typical fire ant colony produces large mounds in open areas, and feed on plants, insects and seeds. Fire ants often attack small animals such as lizards or frogs and can kill them. Unlike many other ants, which bite and then spray acid on the wound, fire ants bite only to get a grip and then sting (from the abdomen) and inject a toxic alkaloid venom. For humans, this is a painful sting, a sensation similar to what one feels when burned by fire (hence the name), and the after-effects of the sting can be deadly to sensitive people. Fire ants are more aggressive than most native species, and have pushed many species away from their local habitat.

Invasive Species – Fire Ants

Fire ants are not only annoying pests to have in your yard, they can also invade your home or business. In Texas, we experience some pretty hot temperatures which most often time leads to droughts, or the extreme opposite effect of flooding rains. Both of these conditions will bring fire ants into your home or business in search of food, water, and nesting sites. 

Fire ants are persistent!

The key to successful long-term fire ant control is to be as persistent as the ants. Even if you kill every fire ant in your yard, new queens will soon be landing after their mating flights and starting new colonies. But if you treat for these fire ants preventively, you can keep most of these new colonies from surviving to become big mounds.

There are many types of ants, but fire ants can be the worst. If you need help with a fire ant treatment or a pest control plan contact Camo Pest Control. We can help you with all of your pest control needs, including these horrible and invasive fire ants.
