Fire ant mounds

Take the Sting Out of Fire Ants

Effective fire ant control calls for long-term, proactive treatment. It isn’t enough to fight the fire ants on the surface. Fire ant tunnels can extend deep underground, up to 25 feet away from visible mounds. The fire ants you can see are only a fraction of the problem – and are easily replaceable.

Central Life Sciences has the product solutions to help you take the sting out of the underground fire ant threat. Our product solutions are designed to protect mature groves as well as non-bearing fruit/nut trees.
