It’s that time of year again. Baseball time. And we have a saying here at Sandpiper Pest Control:
“There’s NO Fire ants in Baseball!!”
This past week, we donated fire ant treatments for a couple of the local little league ball fields. With the Top Choice treatment we applied to those fields, Sandpiper Pest Control can guarantee these fields will not have fire ants for a full year! If you, or someone you know, manages a ball field, have them call us and we can explain to them how to keep their ball players safe from those painful fire ants all season.
Red imported fire ants usually nest in soil near structural foundations or in landscaping. Most of the time they build their nests out of doors. Anyone who has lived in Florida for more than a few weeks has seen their mounds on their lawn, around their trees. The other day I cam out to find they had built a nest up the side of one of my clay pots. They are clever creatures, I give them that.
They are also known to migrate indoors, through heating systems and air conditioning units. They won’t bother you until you accidentally step on one, and then watch out. The reason they are called Fire Ants is that their sting makes the area around the sting feel like it’s on fire. Often, a person stung by red imported fire ants will receive multiple stings from more than one of the ants.
Don’t let fire ants ruin your teams ball playing time. Call us at Sandpiper pest control..we can get them to leave you in peace!
