Termite swarmer

5498  My name is David. We have seen these maybe once a year on warm days at our home at edge of forest, Vancouver Island BC. Sept 25/09/2013 (photo of individual insect) & 13/10/2015 (photo of swarm near top of tall fir tree). The swarm is persistent and lasts at least an hour. Insect length (mouth to end of wings) is 1.0cm. Identification much appreciated.
.This is an alate (reproductive/’swarmer’) termite. You may consider having your home inspected to determine whether any on these have decided to make your home theirs as well. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV
