Fire Anti works with the client to understand their needs and forms an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system specifically to serve their fire ant needs.
What is IPM? Integrated Pest Management is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
Our treatments are specifically designed to be enticing and toxic to only fire ants. Unlike most fire ant control methods (such as Talstar/Orthomax/etc), which entail spraying the entire land area with poison, we use a specially designed formula that will not poison beneficial insects, bees, geckos, vegetation, pets, or your family.
All products used are over the counter pest controls that require no restricted use license and have extremely low toxicity levels. Our bait is made to stick to trees and foliage, which is necessary to reach arboreal nesting ants. All pest controls used are labeled safe for fruit bearing trees and other food related agriculture. Our bait is mixed into Gel Bait, which allows it to remain active for long periods of time, even withstanding most Hawaiian rains. The Gel Bait used is a very safe and effective way of killing fire ants. We will use a combination of this Gel Bait with growth regulator and a low toxicity granular for infested borders.
After we have successfully killed all colonies and gotten ant populations under complete control you may elect to enter into a quarterly service in which we will continue to monitor and apply border treatments. Based upon an assessment of your lot, you will be given a price per quarter. Prices can be seen on previous page.
***Note*** If you opt out of an extended protection plan, we will evaluate the property as a new infestation and therefor a main treatment price will be charged.
