North Central Florida’s largest city is Gainesville, located in Alachua County. This area has a rich history, with its establishment dating back to the Civil War era and is marked with many historical landmarks. Cultural facilities feature museums, theaters, and annual festivals and many well-known artists in the music industry, like Tom Petty and Stephen Stills, called Gainesville home. The green from the abundance of trees all over the city is punctuated with orange and blue displayed with pride from the University of Florida, one of the largest universities in the nation. Cheering on the Gators is a favorite past-time, as well as visits to parks that feature everything from history to wildlife.
The imported fire ant is an unwanted guest for residents, students, and visitors alike in Gainesville, as well as its surrounding communities including Alachua, Newberry, and Micanopy. Fire Ant Specialists have been treating nurseries, municipal parks, and farms in this area with great success.
Obtaining that success is simple. With only two treatments per year, Fire Ant Specialists’ application method guarantees that you do not have to live with fire ants any more.


Extermination is not instantaneous. That’s why our application method works! The fire ant colony travels deep into the ground, down to the egg-producing queen. Contact poisons only focus on the surface ants you can see. Our granular bait does not kill the surface ants so it is taken down to the queen, which sterilizes her. This results in altering the entire colony’s life cycle and the remaining ants die off within 5-8 weeks, without new ants to replace them. Continuing the cost-effective, twice per year treatments, you simply will not have a fire ant problem again.
Outside of calling licensed pest management professionals like Fire Ant Specialists, there is no “best way” to get rid of a fire ant problem. The key to controlling these painful troublemakers is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage and health risks they can cause to humans, animals, and property.


Our guarantee states that if, after sufficient time for the product to work, you still have an infestation, we will re-treat that area at no charge. Our team is confident that you will be satisfied or your money back.
