It's not a winged ant.
There are several species of termites common to the Bay Area. The most common are the swarming varieties. Because swarming termites can resemble a winged or flying ant, many property owners tend to dismiss them as such. Big mistake. According to Pest World, "Each year, termites cause about $5 billion in property damage." We've yet to see a winged ant do that.
