Houston Fire Ant Control

Spring Special! Treatment for your yard with a 1-year warranty


Once you have an invasion of fire ants, getting rid of them can be really hard to treat on your own. As in most cases of pest control, the best offense is a good defense. Preventing an infestation of fire ants should be on your mind, even if you don’t have them yet, because their colonies grow so quickly.

How We Treat Fire Ants in Houston

While fire ants usually remain outdoors, they will sometimes enter homes in the summer looking for food. For this reason, our technicians start with a thorough inspection inside and outside of your home. We are trained to find nests and the queen ant and treat based on the ant species with residual or baiting.

Knowing ant nesting and food characteristics can help trace where in your home or business ants are spending most of their time. Each ant, including the fire ant, is unique and so is the treatment of them.

One of the most characteristic behaviors of the fire ant is its aggressive response to nest disturbance including a vigorous and painful sting. Although they do hurt a lot, fire ant stings are not likely to be extremely harmful—except for the small percentage of people who are allergic to the venom they inject. For these people a sting can be lethal if not treated right away. 

How Large are Fire Ant Colonies?

Fire ants often prefer to reside in massive cities that are made up of more than 250,000 worker ants in each group. The reason fire ants are able to live in such large colonies is that they reproduce very quickly. In fact, one queen ant can lay up to 1,600 eggs in just one day!

Do Fire Ants Sting?

Yes! Although they do hurt a lot, fire ant stings are not likely to be extremely harmful—except for the small percentage of people who are allergic to the venom they inject. For these people a sting can be lethal if not treated right away.

Can I Treat Fire Ants Myself?

It's not recommended. Fire ants can usually determine when a repellant is sprayed and avoid it. So while you will have some dead ants, the fire ants that avoided the spray will often start new colonies with new queens, causing you a bigger headache.
