Our fire ant control services in Orlando, FL involve removing the ants that are currently living on your property, as well as destroying the colonies and placing protective barriers to prevent them from coming back.
Fire ants live in mainly tropical regions, including Orlando, Florida. They are also called stinging ants, and are typically red in color, so you can easily identify them. When they populate an area, they build mounds and feed on seeds, plants, and some types of insects. Fire ants first bite then sting human flesh, and then they will inject a toxic venom. Their name comes from the feeling that comes with the venom; it feels as though you are being burned with fire. If you have an allergy to the venom, the sting can be fatal, but for most people, it will simply cause irritation and a raised, raw area.
