Well, it appears that we were ahead of the news on reporting about Crazy Ants invading Mobile and other locations across the Southeast.
Here is link a story about crazy ants posted by the local Mobile news channel WKRG.
Here is an excerpt from their story:
What kind of concern does this new ant pose? Ellen told us, “They will bite but their bite is very minor and they’re not aggressive. The problem is in their numbers, where you’re talking about hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of fire ants, you’re talking about colonies of billions with the crazy ants.” That makes crazy ant colonies at least ten times bigger and up to one hundred times bigger than the average ant colony.
So what to if you find crazy ants in your backyard? You will need more than just a can of bug spray. You will have to call a professional exterminator. The EPA has approved short-term use of a powerful pesticide called fipronil to combat the problem.
The pesticide being referenced can only be obtained by licensed pest control companies. We are ready to treat your Crazy Ant problem.
