Hmmm

So the ant guys got called, and they showed up and did the exact same (useless) thing they did last year.  They laid down sticky traps.

Last year, they caught exactly zero ants, but several silverfish (ick) and the second guy who came out kind of rolled his eyes and grumbled about that being pointless.

Which made me wonder... is this a tactic?  Might the company possibly do this and then have to return (at a second fee/cost) and do something different?

Or maybe in a less suspicious line of questioning... is this just the first line of attack or something?

I'm not really sure of the point of sticky traps... it's not going to stop anything or eliminate any nests or anything....

But, hey, not my area of expertise, I know... just.... wondering...

If we assume only good motives, the sticky tape might be a means to identify location and numbers which they can then later use to develop a strategy of attack.

On the other hand, my more negative sense of human nature is that it's a way to bill for multiple visits while doing the minimum of efforts.

Could be a bit of both...
