Benefits Of Fire Ant Control
December 16, 2019 - Ants
Do you value your yard? Is it a place you enjoy spending time? Do you like hosting cookouts or watching your kids play? For many homeowners, their yard is an extension of their home. But no home feels like a home when pests are around. Here in Texas, many yards are invaded and destroyed by fire ants. People are being bitten, and more and more time is being spent inside just to avoid the pain. What if we told you there was an easy solution to this problem? Would you like to get your yard back to being beautiful and safe? We are here to help.
Problems Fire Ants Cause
If you have ever encountered fire ants, you know that their bites can be painful. Stepping on one of their hills, or walking where they are scavenging for food can result in several red welts on your feet and legs. The pain from these welts is often described as hot and stinging. If scratched excessively, these bites can become infected and lead to more serious problems. If you are allergic to fire ant bites, your reaction could be much worse.
Fire ants are also known for invading gardens and flower beds and causing damage. They do this by feeding on aphids, (beneficial pests known for aiding in healthy plant growth). Fire ants can also damage plants when they build their nests beneath them.
Another common problem with fire ants is electrical disturbances. It is common for exterior air conditioning units to short circuit due to fire ants crawling around within. This can cost a fortune in repair costs.
Finally, fire ants can damage turf with their nests. The dirt mounds fire ants construct on grass suffocate it by blocking the moisture, sun, and nutrients it needs to survive. This leaves large patches of dead grass throughout a yard making it look unhealthy. If you value having a healthy and green yard, this isn’t acceptable.
