The Benefits of Extinguish® Plus for Protecting Greenhouses, Nurseries and more

Fire ants pose a significant threat to the greenhouse and nursery industries, causing damage to plants, hindering growth, and posing a danger to employees and patrons. These pests nest in both soil and pots, particularly favoring moist areas, making nurseries especially vulnerable. Central Life Sciences offers a solution to help protect your property from these damaging ants with our effective Extinguish® Plus fire ant bait.

The Impact of Fire Ants:

  • Dangerous Stings: Fire ant stings not only cause discomfort but also pose a risk to the health and safety of workers and patrons.
  • Potential Economic Loss: According to the USDA, these tiny terrors inflict over $5 billion in damages annually in the United States alone. The damage inflicted by fire ants can result in significant economic losses for nurseries, impacting productivity and profits.
