Exterminating Fire Ants In Southern California Since 1994

Fire Ant Control in LA, Orange and San Diego Counties

Why Do I Have Fire Ants?

Fire ants enter homes in search of shelter from weather or to find new sources of food or water. In the hot summer months when ant infestations are the most common, ants typically enter the home in search of water sources. This is the reason fire ants are commonly found in dishwashers, sinks, showers and around toilets. After finding water, the ants spread out and search for sources of food for the colony. It is important to stop ants before they establish trails inside your home because they are much more difficult to control once they have established themselves.

Fire Ant Inspection

Your pest control service will begin with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your residence and property to identify the fire ant infestation. During the inspection, your ant control technician will identify potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of your problem areas have been identified, your technician will point out other potential ant harborages and steps you can take to reduce future ant infestations. Your technician will create a customized ant treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious ant control solutions.

Fire Ant Treatments & Pest Control Service

We not only kill and control your current fire ants, but help prevent any future ant outbreaks. Most ant infestations originate outside, your technician will focus on the perimeter of the home and outlying areas of the yard. In addition to exterior ant treatments, we can also treat the interior of your home to stop fire ants from entering. Future service treatments will be exterior-only, without requiring you to be home or having to worry about scheduling conflicts. Griffin Pest Management offers Monthly, Bi-Monthly and one time ant services with no contract required.

Guaranteed Results

Both the inside and outside of your home are always under warranty. We guarantee your satisfaction between regular scheduled maintenance services. If at any time you find yourself in need of an additional treatment between regular scheduled services, call us and we will return to re-treat your home.

Quick Facts About Fire Ants


These ants will build large mound nests, and will sting humans who come across a nest. They commonly infest garages and homes in southern California.


Red imported fire ants will build their nest mounds outdoors in landscape areas or near a structural foundation. The ant will gain entry to a building through holes or cracks.


The sting of a red imported fire ant is painful and often results in a raised welt that becomes a white pustule. Often, a person stung by a red imported fire ant receives multiple painful stings from more than one of the ants. Persons allergic to insect stings will react more severely.


Red imported fire ants and their telltale mound nests should be actively avoided. To prevent entry into a structure, seal all internal and external cracks and crevices.

When we first moved to San Diego from Seattle 10 years ago our house was full of ants. We contracted with Griffin immediately and have never had any pest issues since. Their employees are reliable and do a good job, HIGHLY recommend their very affordable regular service.

The service technician from Griffin was both friendly and knowledgeable and the office staff were able to work with my rather rushed need for scheduling. I was so pleased with their work when they came and tented my house for termites that, just recently when the weather brought ants out across my whole neighborhood, I called them back for any treatment and have recommended them to several friends and neighbors.

We are extremely satisfied with this service. Our service guy Joe is awesome. He goes above and beyond to help us with anything we need. We never have ants and he has definitely kept the spiders away. Joe has also chased rats away for us and for that we are grateful. Well worth the money! Thanks Joe!
