Controlling Fire Ants in Commercial Environments
Fire ants resemble ordinary ants. However, they are much more aggressive and may be invasive, as well. When nests or foraging workers are stepped on or disturbed, fire ants will attack. They will grip an area firmly with their strong jaws, then sting in a circular pattern while remaining attached to a fixed point. Fire ants can destroy agriculture and livestock, as well as damage buildings, wiring, vehicles and other equipment.
For business owners, depending on your industry, fire ants can also pose a significant threat to workers, diners or those staying in your hotel.
How Strategic Industries Combats Fire Ants
We begin with a thorough inspection of your commercial property for fire ant nests and foraging areas to combat these pests at their source. If even one queen or one colony survives, fire ant issues will resurface quickly. Let our company minimize your risks to customer health and property damage by controlling fire ant populations.
Strategic Industries can create a customized preventative maintenance plan to reduce the likelihood of re-infestation.
How You Can Help Control Fire Ant Populations
Fire ant populations can be noticed due to nesting features or foraging activities. Nests are likely to be found in the following places:
- Near river banks and other bodies of water
- Along highway shoulders
- In fields or watered lawns
- Open fields
- Under rocks, bricks, or fallen logs
Minimize your losses and reduce liability risk by maintaining regular fire ant treatments to eradicate the nests and prevent re-infestation.
