I found a suspicious looking insect in my kitchen counter top, and I'm wondering if it was a termite. Can anyone who are familiar with termite confirm whether or not the insect in the picture below is a termite? I recall that the length of the insect was about quarter inch (~ 6mm.)
I also noticed small white, almost transparent wings floating on top of the pool in my backyard after a couple of rainy days. I guess probably there were a swarm of those insects in my backyard a couple of days ago. Should I worry about any potential termite infestation?
By the way, for anyone who are curious, I live in northern California (Bay area) where termites are common problems.
