Fire Ant Services & Pricing
(Commercial and Residential Services Available)
Fire Ant Control Procedure:
- We will visually inspect the infested area (usually outside), provide a free estimate for the treatment, spot-treat the mounds, and granulate the yard twice a year. The time it takes to complete the process and the cost of the treatment varies. These figures depend on the size of the treated areas and the extent of the infestation.
- You should have your grass cut 2-3 days prior to inspection.
- We will use spray and granules to treat the area of infestation. These chemicals can possibly be harmful if they come into contact with skin, are ingested, or are inhaled.
Fire Ant Prevention:
The best way to prevent future issues is to schedule regular visits from a pest control professional especially in the spring and summer months. There’s not much else you can do to prevent these little buggers from living in your yard. Develop a plan with an MDE Pest Services professional to prevent and manage future fire ant issues.
Fire Ant Identification & Issues
- Fire ants are reddish in color, about the size of a grain of rice, and usually found outside. They live in mounds of dirt that can range in size.
- Fire ants are especially active in the spring and summer months.
Damage to Health or Property:
- Fire ants are strangely attracted to electrical equipment (air conditioning units & traffic lights) and often cause electrical malfunction.
- Aside from that type of property damage, 1 in 200 people are highly allergic to the toxic venom fire ants inject into the skin. Symptoms may include swelling, hives, difficulty breathing, a racing heartbeat, fainting, and throat blockage. Severe cases are fatal; a victim in anaphylactic shock must be treated immediately.

- I have used MDE Pest Services for 2 years now. I have nothing but rave reviews! They are very quick and efficient with scheduling and will get to your property as soon as they can. They work around your schedule personally as much as they can as well. I get basic pest control indoor and outdoor at my home and if after they spray anything comes back that shouldn’t be there they gladly come back out to do a re-spray or touch ups as necessary. They have a great product and wonderful staff and I will never think about calling another pest control company. I like it a lot as well because it is family owned for more than 40 years and the owners are very hands-on which makes me and I am sure other clients much more trust worthy of their services. If you have a pest control company I would suggest calling them to get an alternate quote and if you do not currently get pest control then you should start… I promise you will not regret it.Casi RobinsonCatering & Sales Manager at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Greenville, SC
- I am writing this to tell you just how pleased I have been with MDE. My Dad uses MDE for all his exterminating needs, and has since I was in High School. I met Mike Davis when he came out to do the first service for my Dad. He probably thought I was a pest for asking so many questions. He struck me as knowledgeable about what he was doing, and friendly. When I grew and bought a business and then a house, there was no question who I would use. The service has always been timely and great. Thirty something years later my father and I are still pleased with the reliability of MDE.Jack GormanGreer, SC
- I not only highly recommend MDE, I encourage you to call them. The staff there is responsive, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. We had an outside wedding at our house in the month of May and thanks to them, there were no mosquitoes, fire ants or unwanted critters to bother our guests or spoil our special day.Karen DyeCreative Home Staging Services in Travelers Rest, SC
- I have used the services of MDE Pest Services, Inc. at my home, my parents’ home and my office. I cannot say enough good things about the company, its owners and its employees. They discovered and solved problems under our building that our previous company had never uncovered, making me wonder if they had ever even looked under our building at all! In addition to providing excellent service for a great value, they are readily available for special requests/needs, and are professional and friendly. I would highly recommend them to any home or business owner for inspections, CL-100 reports, and contractual annual service/treatments for all your pest control needs.Meredith C.

- We have been using MDE pest for our home since before we bought it. They were very responsive in getting the inspection done to ensure we were getting a home free of moisture and termites. We continue to use them for our pest control services because of the quality of their customer service that is delivered by exceptional team members. I highly recommend MDE for any pest control needs that my friends and family may have.Matt Cobb Southern Traditions Window Fashions in Simpsonville, SC

- If you have termites, bees, or ants all you want is for them to be gone. MDE can take care of all of these while you are away at work. They have treated all my pest problems with one phone call and a note is on my door when I return home at the end of the day. They are truly a problem solver for a job you do not want to do yourself.Joe FarmerHome Owner in Greenville, SC
