Yeah, I know... Sometimes it can get a little scary. I've heard a lot of stories. And as many as you've seen, you're only seeing a small sliver of them, believe it or not.
Yes, you'll affect SOME of them, but others won't eat any, so some will be unaffected.
Just stand off, wait a week or so to see what happens. Resist the temptation to spray stuff, aerosols or pre-mixed insectici and des tend to scatter the foragers and you can wind up with more sightings.
Hopefully, this is just that "spring thing" and all will disappear and you won't have to bring the big guns to bear... (Termidor)
