Fire Ant Colony

Colonies

Fire Ant

Fire Ant colonies can have a single queen or multiple queens. Single-queen colonies are territorial in nature, limiting populations to approx. 150 mounds with 7 million ants per acre. Multiple-queen colonies share resources and are tolerant of other colonies. These characteristics may allow for up to 300 mounds and 40 million ants per acre.

Food

Fire Ant

In the morning and evening, worker fire ants scavenge for food. Fire ants, in general, prefer eating plants, microscopic organisms, reptiles, birds, spiders, and even mammals. Worker fire ants carry the food back to the nest to distribute to the entire colony, which includes the queen, larvae, and other workers to enjoy.

Control

Fire Ant

The use of bait, is the most effective method of fire ant control. Bait uses the biology and structure of the colony as the means of dispersal. Fire Ant workers carry the bait to the larvae, and the larvae quickly disperse the active ingredient to the queen and the other workers. To destroy the mound, the queen must be killed.

Question and Answers

Q: How to identify fire ants?

A: The ants are reddish-brown in color and approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch in length. Most people identify fire ants by the appearance of the mound. Fire ants build mounds in almost any type of soil, but they prefer open sunny areas such as pastures, parks, lawns, and fields. Their mounds can grow 18 to 24 inches in height if the soil conditions are right. Often mounds are located in rotting logs and around stumps and trees.
