How do we safely protect your family against Fire Ants?​

Fire ants will avoid acidic mixtures at all cost because it damages a necessary waxy coating on their exoskeleton causing them to suffocate. We do not use broadcasting methods that will leave behind dangerous pesticides in unaffected areas of your yard. We use completely natural solutions applied directly to the Fire Ant mound for a completely people and pet safe solution.
