How many winged ants in a home indicates a problem? I see 1 almost everyday in the kitchen. My husband and I cannot figure out where they are coming from, he has been in the attic and everywhere else that allows him to see in the walls. There is no sawdust anywhere that he has looked. We used to see small ants in the basement, not a lot of them, and we vacumed them up and sprayed some chemical around the baseboards and haven't seen the small ants since. The only thing we are seeing is 1 winged ant a day, I don't know what to do and worry that I have an infestation. The exterminator says it is a problem after only speaking to him on the phone. I am pregnant and do not want to spray harsh chemical around my house right now. Any recommendations would be much appreciated. We trimmed back all trees around the house and moved the wood pile. Please help me!
