How to Get Rid of Fire Ants
At Connell’s Pest Control, we have various ways of treating fire ants. We can treat fire ants by spraying once a year or by pairing your annual treatment with a monthly or quarterly pest service. We also offer bait and insecticide approaches based on what would work best for your house. We will warranty the once-per-year treatment for a year. If paired with an existing service, we will warranty the treatment between services.
Getting rid of fire ants generally involves a three-step process.
Fire Ant Pest Control & Treatment in Calera and Clanton, AL
The red imported fire ant was first introduced into Alabama from South America via cargo ships in the 1930s. In subsequent decades, the species continued its spread throughout the southern states. Here, fire ants have fewer natural predators and can quickly grow out of control.
A fire ant infestation isn’t just annoying; it’s dangerous for pets, children, and other members of your household. Fire ants are common pests that are extremely territorial and will bite any perceived threats to their nests. Multiple bites could require medical attention. In addition, fire ants create unsightly mounds in your yard. They can even damage electrical products and chew through insulation.

First, if there are fire ants inside the home or nesting in the walls, our trained specialists start with a thorough inspection to locate the entry points, seal gaps, and get rid of food sources.
Unlike other ant hills, fire ant mounds don’t have entry points in the center. Instead, they have underground tunnels that need to be infiltrated and treated. To get rid of a fire ant colony in a yard, we start by placing fire ant baits that the worker ants will bring back to the queen. This kills the queen and sterilizes future queens to prevent new mounds from forming
Finally, we treat the property by applying perimeter pesticide sprays to create a barrier around your home and protect you from future infestations.
