Fire ants range from 1.6 to 5 mm in size and appear reddish in colour. These ants typically nest in the ground and are very aggressive by nature, stinging anyone and anything they view as a threat. Being stung can be painful and the affected person should seek medical attention if they experience any severe reaction to the sting.
Fire ants feed on both animal and insects as well as vegetable food sources. They favour warm, sunny conditions and prefer dry fields over the woods and other shady areas.
On average, it only takes a month for an ant to grow from an egg to an adult. Their colonies can contain several thousand ants and at least one queen.
If you notice fire ant activity, your best ant killer is to contact an exterminator for ants. Environmental Pest Control has licensed ant exterminators who know how to get rid of an ant infestation, whether it be getting rid of ants outside or getting rid of ants in the house.
