The key identification for Fire Ants is their dome shaped mounds that can be found in the yard, around sidewalks, electrical utility boxes, potted plants, landscape timbers and many other places. Fire ants are quite small (2-6mm) and come in a variety of sizes within one nest. Their heads and bodies are coppery-brown; two segmented nodes, uneven thorax and their abdomens are darker with a stinger. They are aggressive, particularly near the nest, and can inflict painful stings.
Fire Ant infestations inside the structure can usually be controlled by treating the exterior.
There are times when treating the exterior may not eliminate the ants quickly and inside treatment is needed.
The following aerosol products can be used as a crack/crevice or spot treatment for Fire Ants on the interior:
