Ants flying out of heating and cooling ducts

Question: I have these (what looks like) flying ants that just started coming out of my heat and cooling ducts. I spray with RAID bug barrier but it doesn’t seem to do the trick. There are so many I can’t seem to kill them fast enough. Please help.

Answer: Probably these are not flying ants, but termites….it would be best to have the house inspected by a professional pest control company to make certain what they are and where the infestation is located.
