Fire ants were accidently brought into the U.S on a cargo boat from South America. They spread aggressively to the South because Northern soil temperatures challenged their survival.
Fire ants live in colonies of over 200,000 ants. Fire any colonies usually have female worker ants and one queen that is responsible for laying the eggs.
The workers create under ground tunnels that can extend up to 25 feet and can be present six months before the mound is large enough to be visible.

This product bonds with the organic matter under your lawn. Ants are eliminated when they work the soil in the treated areas. If you see an ant mound in your yard after 6 weeks, please poke the mound with a long stick. If the ants come out aggressively, call us immediately. We will come at no additional charge.
