Fire ants can be painful and aggressive! Let us make your property safe again with our treatments. While most species of ants don’t do much more than ruin your picnics, fire ants can ruin your whole day (or week)! Fire ants are usually red in color, can make small or very large mounds, and can be aggressive protectors of their ant hills. When fire ants sense a disturbance on their nests, they will attack with ferocious vengeance. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t meaning to do harm to a fire ant mound — we just weren’t watching where we step! If you are tired of worrying about where to step in your yard or are worried about the safety of your children or pets, we at at NC Pest Control want to help take care of your fire ant problem.
