Fire Ants

Greenville, SC Fire Ants Control Professionals

Action Pest Services provides treatment for fire ants. Fire ants are insects that live in large colonies of over 50,000 or more ants. For the many thousands of worker ants in a colony, there is usually only one queen that will lay every egg. Fire ants dig in to the earth and build mound-shaped nests to house to house the colony. Fire ants can inflict a painful bite and an even more painful string, which can cause a large welt to appear on the skin, and their nests can destroy landscaping and sink foundations.
