Did you know that the best time to treat fire ants in your backyard is in the fall? It’s true! As the temperature drops, fire ants become more active. When these pests become more active, they can become more of a nuisance for you, your yard, and even your pets.
By being proactive and treating fire ants now, not only are you eliminating them for immediate results, but you are also taking preventative measures to keep them from coming back in the spring and summer.
Here are some reasons why fall is the best time to treat fire ants:
By taking these measures into consideration, you can take control of your yard once again. By doing so, you can protect yourself, your family, and your pets from becoming a victim to a fire ant bite or sting. (Yes, they can do both! Ouch!)
While there are many “Do It Yourself” methods to eliminate fire ants, not all of these are effective. These methods (water, gasoline, or rubbing alcohol, for example) may work, but the results will only be temporary and can cause significant damage to the lawn. Ultimately these methods are ineffective, especially when it comes to eliminating and preventing the ants from returning.
