I strongly disagree with assigning responsibility to YOUR agent as YOUR agent (presumably) didn't act incompetently. Each agent should be responsible for their own actions. That's like making you responsible for your neighbors actions...it just doesn't fly.
Contact the offending agent's real estate board or state association and ask about filing a formal complaint. This is the only way to help incompetent agents pay a price for their actions.
Real estate 101 impresses the importance of securing peoples property as one of the highest priorities in home sales. Anyone other than the listing agent, I would consider issuing a "cannot show" order to the call center or listing office. In the event this is happening with your listing agent bearing the responsibility, it may be time for a conversation with their broker to explore some problem solving options....simply stated, as an absentee seller, you can't afford to remain commited to individuals that are not responsible.

You can demand that the list agent be present for all showings, that shifts the burden to your representative directly.
This will limit the amount of showings to some degree but your home will be secure.

Is this your Listing Agent leaving the house unlocked? If not, then you need to have a conversation with your Listing Agent, they should be able to find out who is leaving your home unlocked, and be able to nip that in the bud.
You need to arrange for your Listing Agent to check on your house for you, to make sure the house is locked up.
If your Listing Agent is leaving the home unlocked, then you need to have a conversation with the broker as they are ultimately responsible.
I wish you the best of luck in your home sale, and hope that Settlement comes soon.
