signs of a fire ant infestation

Recognizing a fire ant infestation is usually easiest when you can identify the ants themselves and their dirt mounds. While fire ants are typically red, they can also be black. They can be easily identified by their bent antennae, two bumps between their thorax and abdomen, and visible stingers.

Unlike other ant colonies, fire ants do not have one dirt mound that they use to enter and exit their underground tunnels.

Below are common signs that the mounds you see in your yard belong to fire ants:

  • The mounds do not have a hole in the center
  • There are multiple mounds (up to 40 in a single acre)
  • The mounds that appear shortly after rain
  • Ants swarm to the surface almost immediately after their mound is disturbed
If you suspect there is a fire ant infestation on your property, call Hawx Pest Control. Our Austin fire ant control team is here to take care of the problem.

are fire ants dangerous?

While they are tiny, fire ants are considered dangerous. If their nest is disturbed or they feel otherwise threatened, fire ants will quickly swarm onto your skin and sting you. Unlike other insects that can only sting once, fire ants can sting multiple times, leaving behind red, painful welts and pustules that can leave a person susceptible to infection, allergic reactions, or even death by an allergic reaction. Fire ant venom contains a high concentration of toxins, which makes them particularly dangerous to children.

Fire ant stings can typically be treated with a topical antihistamine and a cold compress, but if you experience any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention right away:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • Excessive itching
  • Difficulty swallowing

The above symptoms are signs of an allergic reaction to fire ant stings and will typically kick in soon after you receive the sting.

is fire ant control necessary?

Because fire ants can cause serious harm, especially to children and those allergic to them, professional fire ant control is extremely important. If you encounter these pests on your property, it is best to avoid contact with them and call in a team of experts to take care of the problem. At Hawx Pest Control, our Austin fire ant control team has extensive experience treating these insects. We know how to handle them and clear them from your property without putting you or your loved ones at risk.
