Your Trusted Pest Control Solution in Turin, Georgia

One of the most common pests that homeowners in Senoia and the surrounding areas face are fire ants. These tiny yet resilient creatures can cause significant problems, from painful bites to property damage. That’s where Turin Pest Control steps in.

Fire ant control is not just about eliminating the visible ants; it requires a comprehensive approach to ensure a safe environment for you and your family. Our team of experienced professionals understands the biology and behavior of fire ants, allowing us to develop targeted strategies that effectively protect your household & property.

Here’s an overview of our fire ant control process:

  1. Inspection: Our highly trained technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify fire ant nesting sites and assess the extent of the infestation. This step allows us to develop a targeted treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
  2. Customized Treatment: Based on the inspection results, we will design a customized treatment plan that takes into account the size of the infestation, the location of the nests, and any specific factors unique to your property. Our treatment methods are designed to be targeted and successful.
  3. Baiting: One effective method we employ is the use of specially formulated bait. The bait contains an attractive food source mixed with a slow-acting, insecticide. Fire ants are drawn to the bait, consume it, and carry it back to the colony, where it spreads, ultimately eliminating the entire colony.
  4. Direct Treatments: In addition to baiting, we may also apply direct treatments to the visible ant mounds and nesting areas. This approach ensures immediate control and targets areas where fire ants are actively present.
  5. Follow-Up Visits: Fire ant control is an ongoing process, as new colonies can emerge over time. We schedule follow-up visits to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment and address any remaining or newly formed ant colonies.
  6. Preventive Measures: To prevent future infestations, we provide recommendations and advice on how to make your property less attractive to fire ants. This may include removing food and water sources, sealing entry points, and maintaining proper landscaping practices.
