Fire ant mounds are commonly seen throughout Florida. They mound is easily identified by its sandy appearance and size. Residents can easily claim a fire ant infestation to be the biggest nuisance and hazard they may encounter.
The fire ants are most commonly associated with their stings and painful sores they leave behind on your body. A fire ant will sting you when felt there is disturbance to themselves and their colonies. A mound of a fire ant is easily found in a yard, sidewalks, or underneath organic debris such as logs. Average size of a fire ant mound is 1 ½ – 2 feet tall. In an infested acre of land, the population may be from 7-40 million ants depending on the type of colony.
There are two kinds of fire ant colonies; single queen colonies, and multiple queen colonies. The multiple queen colonies are the largest because there are more than one queen birthing new fire ants. The single queen colony is the most aggressive due to their territorial characteristics. They will not migrate to new mounds, they will defend themselves. The colonies with multiple queens travel moving to new mounds.
