Second Floor Termite
April 2, 2010
In October and November of last year, we had flying termites swarming in the second floor of the house. They seemed to be coming out of a damaged (eaten) area of the floor near some “patio” doors that used to lead out to a deck that had been removed in 2007. Today, a contractor opened the stucco and found a lot of damage along with some living bugs shown in the pictures. They looked a bit more whitish to us than they appear in the photos.

Termites

Hi Joe and Joan,
Our best guess is that you have Rottenwood Termites in the family Thermopsidae based on the possibilities on BugGuide, though that is just a guess.  Thanks for providing our readership with valuable images of Termites.
