How to get rid of Fire Ants?


Fire ants exist in almost 280 various species throughout the world. They can be easily identified by their dark abdomen and copper brown colored head. The tropical fire ants and ginger ants are some of the commonly seen varieties of fire ants. These ants usually stay in large colonies and make smaller animals like rats their prey.

They can also sting human beings especially when they happen to step near their colonies. Normally these stings leave you with an intense burning sensation caused by the injecting of the venom in the stinger of the ant. It can cause blisters out of the dead cells in the affected area.

But if you start experiencing symptoms like dizziness, nausea, swelling of tongue and throat, low blood pressure, shortness of breath and sweating, you could be suffering from the rare allergy called anaphylactic shock and require immediate medical assistance.

First aid treatment for fire ant stings

If you happen to be stung by fire ants while outdoors, simply brush away the fire ants from the skin instead of crushing them. A fire ant sting requires the same tending as any other sting. Simply wash the affected area with soap and water and apply a cold compress to reduce the pain and swelling.

How to deal with fire ants in the house?

To eradicate fire ants around your house, spread out baits containing hydramethylnon in and around the mounds. This shows best effect if done during dusk of fall season. The step next to broadcast baiting is drenching, i.e. pouring hot water or dust insecticide containing Acephate on the mounds.

The same broadcast method of baiting can be used indoors. However, you could prevent the infestation by keeping all food products sealed in proper containers. The floor must be always cleaned up of all left-over, vacuumed and bleached regularly. All the holes and cracks should be caulked from time to time.
