Your letter to the bugman:  Hi Bugman,
My friend has these at her house. Is this a termite?
How you want your letter signed:  Prisha


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.

  1. 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.
