Total Fire Ant Control For Your Anna, TX Lawn

As their name implies, fire ants can cause a painful burning sting, which is unpleasant at best and leaves behind white pustules. Even worse, fire ants usually attack in groups, since the entire colony is highly territorial. Fortunately, their sting rarely leaves any permanent damage. However, some people are allergic to this species of ant, which is why they don't belong anywhere near your property.

Red imported fire ants (RIFAs, for short) boast a dark reddish-brown color and are considered an invasive species that's found throughout the southern part of the U.S, which includes Texas.

What Fire Ant Infestations Look Like

If you've ever wondered if you have a fire ant infestation, you can easily recognize their presence thanks to the large mound nests they build, which are flattened, irregular in shape, and between two and four square feet in size.

In most cases, their nests can be found in the soil near structural foundations or in landscaping. While fire ants are primarily outdoor pests, they can access buildings easily through HVAC systems and AC units.

Our Fire Ant Control Process

Without a doubt, professional fire ant control services are the safest and most effective way to control and prevent all fire ant infestations. At EcoArmor Pest Defense, our service professionals understand how frustrating it is to deal with such a potentially painful pest, which is why we have a honed process specifically designed to address your fire ant problems.

Before we get to work on removing any existing colonies, we perform a comprehensive inspection to gain a deeper understanding of the problems you're facing. We will inspect the exterior of the property, looking for active fire ant mounds and other signs of an infestation.

Once we've completed the inspection, it's time to begin treatment. During treatment, we do a granular treatment across the entire yard. Additionally, we'll treat the entire landscape along with anywhere else that's needed such as an active fire ant mound. Our Anna, TX pest control service professionals perform these treatments on an annual basis and they are normally done in March and April.
