Our Mission

Since 1993, Environmental Specialists, Inc. has been dedicated to providing a custom fire ant control application service with a guarantee of success.

Now doing business as Fire Ant Specialists, our mission and #1 goal has always been to give our customers the peace of mind that comes from living without worry of fire ants.

We operate under the simple but strict guidelines of providing high quality customer service and backing up our guarantees. And the guarantee is simple: if our service does not work within the time frame specified to you at the time of application, we will re-treat the area of infestation at no charge. We promise to satisfy every customer.



Horse Farms


The #1 pest in the Southeast has finally met its match! FAS has treated hundreds of thousands of acres for fire ants over the last 25+ years with tremendous success.

FAS is the original and largest fire ant control company in Florida.

FAS’s custom application service is guaranteed. We use a safe and effective process that will eliminate the worry of fire ants from your farm, nursery, home or business. Other companies may use contact poisons that only get the surface ants. Unfortunately, that only lasts up to 30 days and is very expensive. With only two treatments per year and our seasonal guarantee, our system works deep to get at the ants you can’t see. Not only will you save a lot of money, you will believe that fire ants can be controlled. And we guarantee those results. If part or all of your treated property is re-infested (after allowing the process to work) and it’s well before your next treatment, we will come back and retreat that area at no cost to you.

FAS is located in Marion County, and with our satellite office located in Sarasota, we are able to cover all of Central and North Central Florida.

We treat nurseries, horse farms, municipalities, cemeteries, athletic fields, and a wide variety of other commercial property.

We provide wall-to-wall exact application rates with speed and accuracy and with a minimum of interference to your operation. We can treat up to 1,000 per day and can also provide weekend applications when your workers are not present. Our business is protecting your business, home, loved ones, pets, and stock.

We’re proud to serve the areas in and around:

Ocala – Gainesville – Williston – Inverness – Groveland – Leesburg – Brooksville – Tampa – Bradenton – Sarasota – Arcadia – Venice

If you don’t see your area listed here, don’t fret!  Please contact us for more information.

Thanks to FAS, our tree farm has been fire ant free for 10 years now. The damage to plant material and the painful stings are history. Our staff and customers are delighted. Quite simply, they never let us down.

We’re so grateful to have found FAS! With a 76 acre ranch and 19 horses we needed to get our fire ant issue under control, not just put Band-Aids on one mound at a time. Our special riders and families are safe and our pastures are ant free- thanks to the generosity and effectiveness of FAS’s treatments. Thank you for your care and dedication to our mission.

Palmco has used Environmental Specialists, Inc. since before 1996 for our fire ant control. Their service, methods and staff are excellent. They maintain our entire property year round and keep it free of fire ants at a low cost. I would not trust anyone else to do this job for us. You can always rely on them and under all circumstances they know what they are doing. I would recommend them to everyone.

The entire staff at FAS has always been courteous, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful answering my many questions during the past twenty years. They arrive with a smile and do an excellent job. Many thanks to all of you!
