3 Ways to Keep Fire Ants Out

Of all the different types of common household ants, fire ants are the most dangerous. These ants have a powerful sting that leads to blisters, red skin, and itching. In an allergic reaction, a fire ant’s sting can create difficulty breathing, swelling, and even death! Here are a few things that you can do to keep fire ants out of your house:

  • Keep food out of sight! Ants will enter your home looking for food. If a single ant finds significant amounts of safe food, hundreds will likely follow. That’s because of ants’ special ability to mark a safe food source so that other ants can find it. The other members of their colony will come to carry away your spilled food or exposed pet food and – before you know it – you have an infestation on your hands.
  • Fix any leaks in your plumbing! Ants will also come marching into your home looking for a safe water source. If they find one, you may soon have hundreds of unwelcome house guests!
  • And the most important preventive measure: have your home regularly sprayed for bugs by a pest control professional. If, in spite of your best efforts, you find that you have an infestation on your hands, give a call to your Utah pest control experts and we’ll swiftly dispatch them for you.

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
