While painful, a fire ant sting can cause serious health issues for anyone in your household or visiting your property if they are allergic. Rather than spend your summer watching for fire ant mounds in your yard, contact Getem Services for professional fire ant control in Hampton Roads.

Fire Ant Inspection
When you reach out to Getem Services for help getting rid of fire ants in your yard or even inside your home, we’ll start with an inspection to determine the scope and severity of the infestation as well as locate fire ant mounds.
Once we complete our assessment, we’ll review our findings and recommend the fire ant treatment protocol that will work best for your specific circumstances.
Fire ant mound injection
Using the “rodding” method, we will dispatch product into each fire ant mound in order to instantly kill the entire ant population, including the queen. After the initial treatment, we may require a follow-up inspection up to a week later to ensure the problem has been resolved.
Ideal for homes with children, the elderly, and pets, our pest control specialists broadcast/spread a fire ant specific bait across the treatment area. It should be noted that this method of fire ant extermination is not as fast acting as mound treatments, takes approximately two to three days for colony elimination, and may require a second application, depending on the level of infestation.
Interior spot treatment
Although fire ants are typically found outside, they can create satellite colonies inside homes and other structures. When this happens, our pest control specialists will analyze the nutritional need of the fire ant colony and spot treat using the proper bait selection.
