Looks like imageshack has changed.... Now when you go to see this photo, it comes up with an "come back later" page. Just hit F5 and reload the page and the photo appears....
About 1/2-inch long. Found outside the house but no termite droppings anywhere around.
Looks like termite except that one place said termites' wings are easy to break off and this one was not. Also illustrations show termite antennae as being straight or slightly curved and flying ants' as being like elbows. Can't see in the photo, but this one is elbowed.
If termite, what is an effective pesticide that I can use for spot treatment without hiring an exterminator? I see a lot of borate-based materials online but I notice when I have used them for ants, it doesn't work unless you mix in with something sweet that attracts them (this info is never on the labels...)
