Our experts apply a two pronged approach to extermination. The first step involved getting rid of the queen, deep in the colony. Since not all colonies are identified by the mound, careful attention is required apply the treatment to where the most egg-laying queen is located. Even a single queen left in the colony can repopulate it in a relatively short period of time. Bait is utilized to take care of both queen and worker ants which are situated deep in the colony.
The second step is to use insecticide for targeted treatment on the mounds if they are visible, in order to further degrade the structure and social connections of a colony. For both steps, the time to treat fire ant infestations is in cooler weather or in early morning or late evening hours when the ants are more active.
