Spring has awakened many things here in Texas: the flowers, trees… and the fire ants. During this time of year, fire ants become increasingly active as they forage for food and search for new places to colonize. Protect your lawn from these dangerous pests with professional fire ant control from Green Team Pest. Our team will customize a pest control solution for your home and lawn that effectively eliminates and prevents future infestations.
A Painful Problem
Fire ants are more than just a nuisance. Rather, they are quite dangerous and can trigger lethal reactions in young children, people with allergies, and pets. In addition to their painful stings, fire ants can also cause costly damage to lawns and buildings. Fire ants are not preferential about where they colonize. Henceforth, they will invade anywhere food is available, including homes, buildings, gardens, electrical equipment, utility housings, compost piles, and landscaping.
Treatment Is Challenging
Fire ant mounds are unsightly and pose difficulties when mowing, landscaping, farming, etc. However, mounds are just the tip of the iceberg as fire ant tunnels can reach seven feet beneath the surface of the ground. To make matters worse, a single queen can lay up to 2,000 eggs per day! These factors make treating fire ant colonies particularly challenging. Unless the queen and all worker ants are killed, the colony will quickly rebound.
Even if you find success exterminating fire ants on your own, the battle is far from over. Fire ants prefer to colonize areas that are free from competitors, so an empty yard is quite appealing to them. Unless you intend to make fire ant treatment your favorite hobby, call Green Team. Our team will customize a treatment plan tailored to your home’s specific needs. Then, we will treat your lawn accordingly to provide effective, long-lasting results.
