Dear Prisha,
Though it resembles a winged Termite alate, this is actually a benign Webspinner in the order Embiidina.  We had one reader submit a Webspinner Dynasty inquiry after she allowed them to cohabitate in her bathroom.

    We also have a house in Paso Robles and have seen a bunch of these over the past few weeks. Let me know if you find a way to keep them out of the house.
