City of Ocala, Florida, located in beautiful Marion County, along with its surrounding communities such as Dunnellon, Belleview, Silver Springs, and Reddick, are home to over 900 horse farms, housing 54 different breeds of horses. This fact, and along with being the top breeding center for Thoroughbreds in the nation, Ocala is, naturally, the Horse Capital of the World.
This makes it clear why Fire Ant Specialists began the original fire ant control company in Florida right here back in 1993. The threat to horses (and esp. the foals) and their farmers’ livelihood were constant from this vicious invader.
Horse farms are only part of the fire ants’ target. Marion County is home to a multitude of wonderful parks (city, county, and state, as well as recreation and athletic), camp sites, cemeteries, schools, nurseries – the list is endless!
We can treat them all. 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.
