Fire Ant Control
Nobody wants to deal with a fire ant infestation. Not only are fire ant bites painful, but they can also pose health risks. If you’re noticing an influx of fire ants in or around your property, it’s important to call PURCOR’s pest control professionals as soon as possible before the problem gets worse.
What You Should Know About Fire Ants
Fire ants are small but noticeable. The most common way to spot an ant infestation is by seeing them. If you notice many ants trailing to and from food sources, you may have an infestation.
Another way to identify an infestation is by checking to see if there are mounds of dirt, sand, or clay on the property. The mounds of dirt could signal that there is a larger ant nest.
Fire ants are omnivores, content to eat both meat and vegetable sources of food – particularly greasy or sweet foods. They leave an invisible trail of pheromones to the food source, allowing others to follow the scent to its location, which is why you often see them traveling the same paths.
If you suspect you have fire ants, leave identifying them to PURCOR’s experienced pest professionals. We have the knowledge and equipment necessary to accurately identify and control fire ants.
Are fire ants dangerous?
Many know the all too familiar pain of a fire ant sting, which contains venom that can cause a painful burning feeling. Their bites can also cause red bumps that can leave scars. Some people are allergic to fire ant venom and have a reaction such as nausea, sweating, and excessive itching.
Allergies can be fatal if not treated immediately and properly, so it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you suspect an allergic reaction.
Another risk of fire ants is food contamination. Because the ants carry bacteria on their bodies, they can spread this bacterium as they travel across countertops or crawl in pantries.
