Fire Ant Control

fire ant characteristics

Size: There are many sizes of workers in the colony, ranging from 1/8-inch to almost 3/8-inch in length.  Color: Reddish brown.

The red imported fire ant was brought into this country during the 1920s and has spread to cover most of the Gulf Coast states and most of eastern Texas.  It is now established north into parts of Tennessee and North Carolina.

Approaches to controlling Imported Red Fire Ants include trenching the mound directly with an insecticide such as Tempo, CyKick, or Suspend.

Or, make a mound or broadcast bait treatment using  Advance Carpenter Ant Bait, or Advion Fire Ant Bait or Maxforce Complete.  Perimeter treatments around the structure should be conducted on a regular basis to keep fire ants from invading the structure.

Mound drenching involves flooding the mound with a large volume of water based insecticide. More that one gallon is needed for most mounds and larger mounds may require more than one gallon. Tempo, CyKick, or Suspend are labeled for the Imported Red Fire Ant.
