We have found what I believe are small winged termites in our basement. Anyone have any insight on which assassins we should call. Thank you.

Are they termites or flying ants? Easy way to see is to look at waist. Termites waists are same size as torso while ants have pinched in waists.

This time of year, most likely termites.... above description is correct.In addition, termite wings are long and easily fall off.

Post a pic if you can.

Google Taurus SC eBay is your best bet. It will also eliminate ants and those annoying cave/camel crickets.

Taurus is only for outdoor and dangerous to pets and human if inhaled

I suggest using something weaker like BIFEN XTS but effective on termites but safe to animals after it's dried. It's also banned in NY but was able to get it at https://www.solutionsstores.com/bifen-xts

It stinks and I suggest you dilute it more if using it indoors.
