A Thorough Inspection is Key to Control
Fire Ant Inspection - Where to Look
In times when weather conditions such as drought, very high temperatures, or too much rain exist, fire ants are known to move into wall voids, utility boxes and air conditioning units. While taking a look in utility boxes or air conditioning units will be pretty straightforward, looking inside a wall void is more difficult. If you suspect fire ants in a wall void you should use a flashlight and check around the exterior of wall very late in the evening when the ants are foraging. If you see activity in that specific area you can confirm the infestation.
