Why You Should Call The Pros For Fire Ant Control In West Palm Beach

Fire ants

Have you ever done the fire ant dance? It goes like this: First, you bow your head and open your eyes wide. Then, you lift one foot rapidly. Then the other. 

You keep doing this foot lifting motion, switching from one foot to the other while shaking your head back and forth.

The entire dance only takes about six seconds. Some variations of this dance include sliding your hands down your lower legs, ankles, and feet, or muttering the words, "Oh, come on!" Does any of this sound familiar to you? The fire ant dance may be funny to watch, but it isn't funny when you're the one performing it. This is one of many reasons to call a professional when fire ants appear in your yard. 

Here are a few more benefits of professional fire ant control in West Palm Beach.

Fire Ants In West Palm Beach Can Be Dangerous

Most of the time, fire ant bites don't amount to more than a few inflamed bite wounds. But the venom of a fire ant can be dangerous if there is an allergic reaction. Fire ant bites have resulted in anaphylaxis. At best, they will be slightly painful and itchy for days.

This is an acute allergic reaction that can cause dizziness, fainting, nausea, vomiting, wheezing, swollen tongue or throat, rapid pulse rate, and low blood pressure. If not treated quickly, severe anaphylaxis can be life-threatening.

Fortunately, most people don't have this reaction to fire ant bites. But the problem is that it is impossible to know who will, or when they will. An allergy can develop later in life. You can be stung by fire ants several times without reaction, and then have an allergic reaction without warning. This is because your body can become more sensitive to their venom over time.

Fire Ants Are Worse For Those Who Can't Retreat

It may be funny for an adult to have to move quickly to get away from fire ants, but it isn't funny for an infant in a car carrier that has been placed on the ground. Babies can cry for many reasons.

They can cry when they're hungry. They can cry when they're tired. They can also cry when they're being bitten by fire ants. If fire ants have come into your West Palm Beach yard, this is something to keep in mind.

How To Get Rid Of Fire Ants In West Palm Beach

The tunnels created by a fire ant colony can go deeper than ten feet into the ground. If you're considering pouring something into a fire ant mound to get rid of them, you should know that you're not likely to eliminate a colony this way. It can be quite frustrating to put a lot of hard work into getting rid of fire ants, only to have them continue to plague you.

Mound treatments can have some effect, but the products used must be properly selected. At Native Pest Management, our team members apply a mixture of products to get control of fire ants.

These include mound treatments, broadcast bait applications, and spot treatments to restrict the ability of these ants to forage. Together, these get the job done.

Fire Ants Indoors In West Palm Beach

If you don't address fire ants, it is likely that they will continue to encroach. Eventually, they'll be at your exterior walls. This can lead to an indoor infestation.

While you can resist an indoor fire ant infestation by doing a detailed inspection of your exterior and sealing potential entry points, it is nearly impossible to completely seal these ants out of your home. At the first sign of fire ants on your property, it is best to take action and schedule a home pest treatment service.
