Fire ant control services are very important to home and business owners in Winter Haven, FL, due to the potential complications arising from a fire ant infestation.
Fire ants are an imported species that thrives in central and southern Florida. While many species of ant are a reddish-brown in color, and some may bite, spray toxins, or have a poisonous bite, most references to fire ants in the United States refer to solenopsis invicta, or the red imported fire ant. These ants are native to South America and were brought into the U.S. and several other countries accidentally through shipping containers and other methods.
Fire ant control services are very important to home and business owners alike, due to the potential complications arising from a fire ant infestation. Firstly, the aggressive nature of this species and the painful bite can incapacitate or kill creatures many times their size, and their lack of natural predators makes controlling these populations even more desirable. By controlling or eliminating a problem population of fire ants, you can safeguard anyone who visits that property, including pets and small children, whose size can make them more vulnerable to more serious complications from fire ant bites. Because of the tenacity of this species and the threat they can pose, professional fire ant control services are recommended in virtually all cases regarding fire ants.
