Fire Ants Are No Joke! Are You and Your Family At Risk? Fire Ant Control is Crucial During Warm Seasons
These annoying little pests can be more dangerous than we think. Fire ants need to be eliminated in your yard for you and your family’s health and safety. Those little sandy mounds appearing in your yard harbor insects that have the kind of bite that, if stung enough, can make you really sick or even potentially lead to death.
These little red ants will create mounds and infest your entire yard. The problem isn’t with one ant bite. The issue is when you step into a mound the entire colony attacks. Each ant can bite multiple times. So, if you’re attacked by a lot of them you can risk a severe allergic reaction, extreme injury, or even death from the extreme exposure. If anyone in your family has a history of heightened allergic reactions to insects like bee or wasp stings it’s especially important to get rid of the fire ants in your yard.
Fire Ants Spread Quickly
Winged males and females fly out from existing colonies and mate while in flight. After mating, the males die, but females can travel up to 12 miles away from their original nest. The females lose their wings once mating is complete and a nesting spot has been found to build a new colony. Each female is capable of laying over 1,500 eggs per day. This burst of new fire ants being born is what causes the influx of ant piles everywhere.
