Hi friends I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida getting rid of fire ants has to be a number one thing for every home owner out there especially if you have children or pets because fire ants not only can cause major stings and welts on your kids and your pets but they can actually kill youngsters or people that are allergic to fire ant stings. The number one product home owners can use is a product called Amdro Fire Ant Killer. It is a granular product, you put it out with either a little hand held spreader or a regular lawn fertilizing spreader. As a professional we are using a product called Top Choice Fire Ant Killer. It is a one year control against fire ants not only in your lawn but also in your flower beds and in any areas around the home. Once supplied the fire ant bait sits right there at the top of the soil and as the fire ants come by and walk they only forage in a certain area of the lawn and they'll pick up this product, take it back to the nest and it kills all the fire ants in the yard. As a professional I think that is the number one best way for you to go but if you can't afford some of the Top Choice Fire Ant products or the Amdro you may only have a few mounds here and there you can use individual mount applications with a lot of the other products that are out there on the market or you can hire a professional such as ABC Pest Control to come out and take care of your lawn on a regular basis and they'll take care of those fire ants for you. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida hoping you have a pest free day.
