About Fire Ants
Fire ants are biting insects that can be aggressive, attacking family or pets that may disturb them or their nest. They use their stingers to inject a venom that triggers a painful burning sensation.
Although sometimes visible, fire ant mounds aren’t always obvious. Their nests can be hidden and extend six or more feet below the Earth’s surface. Fire ant queens reproduce rapidly and can lay hundreds of eggs in a day, which is part of why they’re such invasive pests.
Our Fire Ant Treatment
Our treatment can eliminate fire ant colonies in harder to reach areas such as sidewalks, driveways, and the foundation of your house. We use TopChoice fire ant killer for our fire ant treatment services. This guaranteed No Fire Ant treatment controls fire ants for the entire season. The worker ants come in contact with the treatment, and carry it back to the colony, creating an “exclusionary zone” that keeps the mound from surviving.
Important Treatment Notes
There are some important notes to keep in mind regarding our fire ant treatment process:
- Initial control may take up to 4-6 weeks, but once the product is in the soil, it remains active for the remainder of the season.
- For best results, simply water the product and follow watering schedule guidelines. This allows the active ingredient to release and bind into the soil.
- Mounds may pop up briefly after a rain, but rest assured, they will be controlled. The initial service is backed by Aggieland Green’s service guarantee as we offer free service calls when necessary.
The active ingredient used in TopChoice is the same ingredient trusted in common flea and tick preventatives, formulated by Bayer to ensure a higher safety standard for your children and pets. Common usage areas for this product include sports fields, daycare centers, and other recreational facilities. This product does require a licensed lawn care professional for application, and is not available for purchase by homeowners. Please note that TopChoice is labelled specifically for fire ants, and may not be as effective on other species of ant.
