Fire Ants can be a menace to Sugar Land residents, and residents in the surrounding areas of Houston, Texas. At EcoGuardian Pest Control, we recognize the dangers posed by these pests, and we appreciate your desire to eliminate fire ant colonies on your property.
Fire ants are a kind of stinging ant that can be found all over the world. Unlike other ants, fire ants are known for the reddish color of their head. Most fire ants produce large colonies that form a mound above the ground. These ants will eat local plants and small insects. When a fire ant is about to deliver a sting, it will bite down to anchor its body and then deliver the sting. During the stinging process, a toxin is injected into the victim. For most people, the fire ant sting produces an unpleasant burning and itching sensation, but the toxin can be deadly to people with certain sensitivities. Multiple fire ant stings can also kill some small animals. Multiple stings are likely to occur if a human or pet accidentally encounters a fire ant mound because the ants will swell out of the mound to attack an intruder. These ants can also have negative effects on agriculture by endangering crops and livestock.
