For homeowners, fire ants not only pose a danger to your lawn’s turf and plants; they are also a danger to people and pets. Fire ants are highly aggressive and territorial, and you are most likely to suffer an attack if you inadvertently disturb a nest mound.
When a nest is disturbed, an immediate, orchestrated assault is triggered – not unlike an encounter with a wasp nest. The ants emerge en masse, to swarm your legs and choose their attack sites. They clamp their barbed mandibles into your skin, bend their abdomens into a stinging position, and then drive their stingers repeatedly, injecting a venomous brew of alkaloids and proteins. Each sting feels like a hot spark, and usually requires first aid.
Fire ant stings are particularly dangerous for people with allergies, who may experience anaphylactic shock. For these reasons, Lawn Doctor recommends that homeowners choose professional fire ant control instead of attempting to treat infestations on their own.
To protect your lawn and family against fire ants, choose fire ant control services from Lawn Doctor. Our fire ant control experts respond to infestations with quick and effective treatments, making it easy to take back your yard from this invasive menace – guaranteed.
