Experience and Expertise in Fire Ant Control in Phoenix, AZ
Sexton Pest Control has been doing ant control in Phoenix since the 1960s. Fire ants have been a major concern for Arizona residents for decades now, being an invasive pest species that swarms over and stings pretty much anything that crosses their path. Sexton Pest Control has experience in dealing with these dangerous swarms, using insecticidal bait to take them out and then trace them back to their hive to deal with the queen. Beyond that, we can also guarantee that we can get rid of the problem at its root, or we will come back and do it again free of charge.
Imported Red Fire Ant
Most any type of ant on your property is a nuisance, especially if that ant is known to swarm en masse and sting anyone unfortunate enough to stumble into its hive or foraging paths. The fire ant has a well-earned reputation as a dangerous and invasive species of pest. In addition to its painful bite, it has and continues to displace many native species of insects, and the animals that feed upon them. Fire ants range in size from 1/16-1/4 of an inch and are a deep red with a darker abdomen. Once one of them has been provoked, it releases a pheromone that signals the rest of the ants in the area to repeatedly attack the closest moving thing. They will eat almost any organic matter, from leaves to meat, and can nest in most any landscape. This is not a beneficial insect, for people or the environment.
Because fire ants nest deep in the soil, it can be difficult to control them through store bought products. Sexton Pest Control uses insecticidal baits that not only take out the ants that come across them, but also all the other ants that are fed the product, from the larvae to the queen. This means they are treated at the source of the problem. We guarantee that your ant problem will be eliminated, or we will come back out, free of charge.
