Well, at least you know they have them, and you can address that. If you get another house, you could have the same problem (or worse) and NOT know it, then you'd be SOL...
It's generally no big deal to take ot a window and find the problem. You do just like the dentist does, you tear into it until you get to the good part, then fix what you need to.
Stand by with the shop-vac & suck up all the ants you discover. Then FIX the problem. If you FIX the problem, you won't need the exterminator.
No house is perfect, but every buyer wants a house with no warts. If you like the house, buy it.
