Hi John--I've read a bunch of helpful posts. I live in CT and have seen 1-2 CA's a day for several days. In random places, but usually in the kitchen, which is adjacent to our patio and a large tree which I'm 90% sure contains a CA nest. Our house is from the 50s and hardly airtight. The back of our lot is heavily wooded about 25' from the house. We have a crawl space as well. I've sprinkled Niban granules in the holes in the big tree and around any stumps near the house. Any thoughts for me? Should I be freaking out? We have cats and I want to be cautious with insecticide use. Your advice is appreciated!
