Fire ants are a spreading menace. Accidentally imported to this country several decades ago, this invasive species has become an increasingly familiar problem to homeowners in the Southern United States from Florida to Virginia. If you see signs of these nasty insects on your property, call the skilled Orlando pest control experts at Apex Pest Control for a free, same-day inspection and effective treatment plan.
Fire Ants are the Source of Painful, Dangerous Bites
If you’ve ever had a fire ant bite you, then you know what a problem they can be. Fire ants are fearsome predators in the insect world, combining strong mandibles with a powerful venom injected via a large stinger. When they bite humans, this same venom can cause an agonizing reaction, including itching, burning, and red swelling. When fire ants go on the attack, they sting their victims repeatedly, so a swarm of them can cause real damage.
Untreated, the resulting wounds can become infected and result in ugly scarring. In addition, some people can develop severe, life-threatening allergic reactions to fire ant bites, and anyone who feels nauseous, dizzy, or develops a severe headache afterwards, should seek emergency help immediately. Having fire ants on your property poses a true risk to you, your family, and your pets.
