Are these termitres?

Hello everyone!

I recently moved to Barcelona, in my apartment a few weeks ago I noticed 10-20 fly like insects throughout the day which I killed. Over the last few days more have appeared, I've never come across termites before but from my googling it looks like they might be, I've added some links to some photos.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Yes I believe they are the reproductive stage of termites. I donít know if these are from subterranean or drywood termites or maybe another specie. Termites are a structural pest so they would be the landlords problem. Nothing you did would have caused termites to invade. Make your landlord aware of them and save samples for positive identification.

Termite species vary greatly from one continent to another. If you learn what specie they are, please tell us.
