Hi, I thought I know common household pests, but this one baffled me. There a thousands of them around inside and outside, and I think it’s mating season for them. I’m in southern California and we just had more than in one day than I can remember. The yard is still damp from it and it’s covered with these little buggers. Please help.
Thank you.

Dear AO,
These are Termites.  Termites frequently swarm on a sunny day after a rain.  We observed Termites swarming in Mount Washington the same day you saw them in Beverly Hills.

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I thought swarming termite had wings. These just crawl around. Happy thanksgiving.

Hi again AO,
Swarming Termites do have wings which the shed after mating.  If you have been seeing so many Termites, there should also be piles of wings nearby.
