My previous message was a little hurried because I guess I was panicing. I'll provide a little more info. I am seeing the CA's in the living room and dining room which is above a crawl space. The crawl space has 3 vents which I leave open. I had an issue around the same time of year about 3 or 4 years ago. The exterminator put some dust in the outlets and behind the baseboard and it seemed to work.No issues up until now. There are a lot of trees on my property and close by. Is it possible these ants are just foraging and the problem will just disappear as mysteriosly as it appeared? There are no moisture issues that I know of. Could this be just a random thing or do I have a problem? I know you stress patience from reading other messages on the board,but the thought of these things crawling on my beautiful hardwood floor makes me squeamish. Can you talk me off the ledge? At what point would you suggest I contact you for an appointment? Today is the first sighting of any CA's for 3-4 years inside.
