The city of Sarasota, Florida, located in stunning Sarasota County, is surrounded by beauty and culture. This is the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus. Off of its coast is a string of melodic sounding keys, like Siesta and Lido, with pristine beaches. To the north is the south end of Tampa Bay, and to the south lies Florida’s spectacular southwest coast. Sarasota is a cultural mecca for musical, dance, and artistic theater, as well as a draw for golfing, fishing, and a myriad of other outdoor activities.
So it’s no wonder why Fire Ant Specialists began a satellite operation for their fire ant control service in this area. Sarasota is such a draw for visitors and residents alike, and that is not where fire ants are welcome.
The vast residential communities of this area, as well as the amazing parks (including city, county, and state parks, as well as recreational and athletic), and farms in Sarasota County and its surrounding towns, like Myakka City, Fruitville, and Sarasota Springs, are an irresistible target for the invasive imported fire ant.
That’s where we come in. All of these areas are treatable. 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 machine queen of a colony. 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.
