If you’ve ever had a run-in with fire ants, you know how painful and frustrating they can be.

Why Fire Ants are Considered Dangerous

Fire ant control is important for several reasons. FIre ants are a danger to both humans and animals due to their painful bites and potential for allergic reactions. They can also damage crops and other agricultural products, leading to economic losses for farmers and other agricultural businesses. Additionally, fire ants are an invasive species and can disrupt the natural balance of ecosystems where they are not native. Therefore, it is essential to implement effective fire ant control measures to minimize their impact on both human health and the environment.

Fire ants are a common sight in many parts of the world, and while they may seem small and harmless, they are actually considered dangerous. Here are some reasons why fire ants are considered a threat.

  • Painful Bites and Allergic Reactions – When a fire ant bites, it injects venom into the skin, causing a painful and burning sensation. This can be particularly troublesome for those who are allergic to the venom, as it can cause severe swelling, difficulty breathing, and, in rare cases, anaphylactic shock.
  • Potential for Secondary Infections – Fire ant bites can also lead to secondary infections if not properly cleaned or if they are scratched. This can lead to further discomfort and health issues.
  • Aggressive Behavior – Fire ants are known for their aggressive behavior and will attack in large numbers if their colony is disturbed. This can be especially dangerous for small animals or children who may accidentally disturb a fire ant nest and be overwhelmed by the number of ants attacking them.

Great experience! Mark is knowledgeable and fair. Very communicative! I knew exactly when his guys were coming and about what time. Benji and DJ did a great job of addressing all the areas of my home where I had gaps that were allowing squirrels into my attic. They were pleasant, efficient and accommodating. Strongly recommend this company.

Called Holders to remove an unknown critter from my house. Benji came out to do my inspection. He was personable, answered all my questions, and gave me a fair price for sealing my house and removal of the pest. He and DJ came back to do the work a couple days later. They were quick and thorough and sensitive to the fact that I had a sleeping newborn. Highly recommend.

Ricky and DJ with Holders Pest & Wildlife services performed our routine service today 9/2022. They were professional, courteous, attentive and appeared to be a good team. Ricky listened and addressed any of my concerns. I can't leave out Felicia, the receptionist, she is phenomenal! She's professional, understanding and willing to work with our schedule so that it's convenient on both sides. She's a keeper & we're grateful for her. Holders Pest & Wildlife has serviced our home for over 3 yrs and have remedied issues from mice, mites, stick bugs, antsand spiders. Being backed up to woods and a creek, we encounter a variety of creatures from time to time. I must add, although there's been a few staff changes over this time period, they still managed to provide good service each visit. Thank you for respecting our request of wearing your facial mask and shoe covers every visit! 🙂

We had a rodent problem and we chose Holder’s to do the job over our current brand name exterminator. I had a fantastic experience from the moment I called their number. The lady who took the call was very sweet and knowledgeable about the many questions I asked. Then she connected me directly with the technician, Benji, who would be coming out for the inspection. He too was so sweet and accommodating to our needs.I thought his initial inspection was done in a very professional manner. The quote and his explanation of the costs were straightforward and at no point, did he try to upsell me. The job was done in a few hours and cleanup was also done well. Benji also does a great job following up and keeping me informed.It’s definitely pricey but very much worth it to have peace of mind. It will save you from other more costly issues in the future. So far haven’t had any issues since they left.? I really liked the hands-on approach and general vibe of this company. There’s something personal about their touch that you don’t get from larger brand name companies.

We had a pest issue in the attic decided to hire Holder Pest to take a look. They were able to handle the issue with speed, professionalism and effectiveness. Their prices were fair and they offer a one year warranty. Ricky and Benji were very friendly and helpful with the entire process. Thanks again. Would recommend both for any pest issues you may have.
