Is My Yard At Risk For Fire Ants?
Fire ants are the common name for several species of ants in the Genus Solenopsis – an invasive group in the United States. They can be identified by their dull red/copper head and thorax, with a dark abdomen. Fire ants also have stingers and painful bites.
Fire ants like to nest in yards that are open and sunny. Well-maintained yards – regularly mowed and watered – are a fire ant’s favorite place, as well as vegetable gardens, newly planted trees, near buildings, and in cracks in sidewalks.
Don’t wait for these nasty pests to ruin your barbecue.
When Are Fire Ants A Threat To My Yard?
Fire ants are most active in the spring, summer, and fall months – migrating and building new nests. These nests often spread into many different colonies, making it difficult to extinguish their presence without a professional’s help.
Green Bee fire ant protection is a simple process that allows you to enjoy your backyard in no time.
A licensed professional will visit your home, assess your lawn, and identify the source of the fire ant infestation (the fire ant mound).
The technician will spot treat with a powder applied directly to fire ant mounds active in the lawn.
Members of the Green Bee lawn care program enjoy free service calls between visits when needed, as well as free fire ant protection services as part of their overall package.
