Hurricane Season Brings Fire Ants
Many do not realize it, but the phrase “hurricane season is here,” can also mean “fire ant season is here.” Wet weather from an active hurricane season causes increased fire ant activity, so be sure to do your best to keep your Central Florida home free from these common but annoying pests.
Fire ants tend to build their mounds when soil is saturated. Excessive water on your lawn caused by rain from a hurricane will force fire ants to move out of their mounds and into somewhere dry—like your home. Fire ants are more prominent in wet conditions and highly concentrated in non-flooded areas during hurricane season.
Did you know that fire ants are one of the most flood-resistant species in the world? It’s true! They flourish in natural disaster conditions and can easily move from their mounds to dry land. Spot-treating mounds or infected corners in your home will not get rid of the problem. The best way to keep fire ants away would be a broadcast treatment in the areas surrounding your home. Our Seven-Step Pest Prevention Program protects both inside and outside your Orlando home and it’s guaranteed!
