How to Get Rid of Fire Ants in Plano, TX

Fire ants are a common pest in the Plano, TX area that wreak havoc on homes and businesses every spring through fall. Fortunately, with today’s chemical technology, there are ways to not just eliminate fire ants but also prevent them.

Effective Fire Ant Treatment at Preferred Pest Management

At Preferred Pest Management, our preferred treatment for fire ants is with a chemical called “Top Choice.” This product consists of a very effective chemical known as Fipronil.

How a Fire Ant Treatment Works

When we arrive for your fire ant treatment, we start by making sure any pets and children are out of the targeted treatment area for the next few hours. After this, we begin spreading the granules with a spreader.

Once the Top Choice granules are spread evenly across the property, we water them in so the chemical can begin to take effect.

How Long Do Fire Ant Treatments Take to Work?

At Preferred Pest Management, we suggest giving the treatment about two weeks to eliminate fire ant activity. If, for some reason, there are still fire ant mounds showing up in your yard, let us know, and we will reapply the chemical as needed to keep them under control for a full year.

Griffin was fantastic and knowledgeable about his service and explaining what he was going to do and the expected results. It’s great to have a contractor who cares about his craft like Griffin does. Glad to have him protecting my house.

Great experience with Preferred Pest. I try to support small businesses and local business owners rather than the large chains when I can, and I am very happy I was able to hire the team at Preferred Pest. I originally called and spoke to Griffin, who I later found out to be the owner. He spent 15 - 20 minutes with me on the phone explaining their different services and pricing along with the pros and cons of each service in a non-pressured way. He also answered all my questions about our pets and the best way to go about using pest control to be safe with all our 5 animals. He was even able to get our house in the route the next day. Upon arriving he explained everything he would be doing and why to my wife and I in a way that made us feel confident as we know nothing about this kind of thing (especially as first time home owners). He spent the next hour or so setting up termite protection, rodent traps, spraying the yard for mosquitos, and taking care of the interior areas we had noticed issues. Finally he made the payment super easy, exactly the amount he told me on the phone (which was very reasonably priced compared to other companies I researched) and let us know the schedule of monthly/quarterly services and when they'd be back again for the next service. Overall, I would highly recommend them!

Griffin was a pleasure to work with and very understanding with the urgency of my request. With the deadline of a closing contract approaching he was fair in evaluating my home and meeting the demands of the new buyer. His work is thorough and honest. A top choice for the area.

We are so glad we found Griffin!! We live in a brand new house and I noticed some mouse droppings in the garage as well as an actual mouse that scared the bagezus out of me. The pest company we were using at the time came out to inspect and give a quote for getting rid of the pesky critters. I (the wife) met with him for the inspection, (knowing I was totally freaked out) he told me all they would do and gave me a quote. What a crock-he added a bunch of checks next to unnecessary boxes, adding up to over $1,300. Obviously, I felt taken advantage of. This is when we called Griffin to get a second opinion. Wow-glad we did!! Right off the bat we felt comfortable with him in our home. He was very professional, on time, respectful and friendly. He actually “taught” us instead of “telling” us what needed to be done and why. Less boxes checked (actually no boxes checked😁), great price and he is coming back tomorrow to check up on the bait stations and traps he placed the initial visit. My husband is the owner of a small business, so we like to support other small businesses. Griffin is the owner, he is the one that comes out and inspects, he is the one who informs and he is the one takes care of everything. He has a great back story, easily relatable and trustworthy. We plan on canceling our other service to go with Preferred Pest. Thank you Griffin!! Chris and Kim Pope Heath, Texas
