Hey bugman,
These bugs seem to come out in force every year in our house around this time of the year or when it is hot. They seem to be attracted to light but they tend to fly towards them. Would you happen to know what these are?

Hi Jeremy,
This sure looks to us like a Termite Alate, a member of the winged reproductive caste.  When conditions are right, Termite Alates, the future queens and kings of new colonies, will swarm, mate and establish new nests.
