Your letter to the bugman:  Hi! I found a bunch of these in my greenhouse recently, some had shed their wings, and others had not yet. Some were actually on top of the soil in some of the plants, but mostly dead on the ground around them. What could it be?

Dear LBY,
These are Termite Alates, the winged reproductive individuals that swarm, mate and shed their wings before beginning a new colony.
