Tiny Fire Ants Can Cause Big Problems
You might not worry about fire ant solutions in Goldsboro until you have a yard full of these stinging and temperamental little insects. These ants make huge mounds in the dirt, so they are easy to spot, but they're unfortunately much harder to get rid of than they are to identify.
Red imported fire ants do well in the Carolinas and all of the Southeast because our climate is sufficiently similar to where they originated. This species of fire ant is from South America and adapted to the rainforest. Therefore, they do very well in warm, moist climates. They cannot survive in the desert, which has its own species of fire ants, and they will die in overly harsh winters. This means they are best suited to our local area.
The main problem with fire ants is that they can sting just like wasps. And, just like many species of social wasp, they will swarm by the thousands and sting as many times as necessary whenever they feel there is a threat to their nest.
Trust Arrest A Pest Exterminators With Your Fire Ant Needs
When you have lots of fire ant hills in your yard, it's easy to have unintentional encounters that result in stings. Many times, fire ant mounds are highly visible. However, sometimes they are smaller or covered by tall grass, and therefore difficult to spot.
This is part of what makes fire ant control so hard, especially once you have an infestation. Before that happens, you can take measures to prevent it:
Cover all garbage on your property at all times.
Store pantry foods and pet foods in airtight containers.
Never leave dirty dishes or food sitting out.
Fix moisture problems, such as leaky pipes or drainage.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get rid of fire ants once you wind up with them. You can buy fire ant products such as granules at the store, but these products typically do not do a whole lot to eliminate your problem. Many times, they temporarily reduce the fire ant population in your yard and cause the remaining ants to spread out. Over time, this can actually lead to more fire ants.
That's why it's better to trust fire ant experts with professional-grade products for your fire ant needs.
