Mindy, I have to say that I agree with the person that said that you "don't have a problem." CAs are great wanderers, often more than a hundred yards from their actual nest, so there is little doubt that you would see SOME. In fact, I see "some" in my own house, which I have lived in for some 38 years, and I have never treated my house for CAs, and I get my exterminator for free...

You can just consider those you see as just wandering foragers, and nothing you need to worry about. When you have a "problem," you'll see that many every day. Sometimes hundreds every day!

So relax, don't worry about it!

I think one thing you should do is to save the name of that exterminator you talked to, he sounds like an honest man!

---John
