Hey everyone. First timer here.

 

These termites have been flying all afternoon in San Diego so I thought I'd go out looking for a mated pair and I think I may have found one! They are in a test tube with wet toilet paper and I put them in a dark place.

 

Now all that's left is an ID. Here are some photos of the other dealates I picked up while out hunting. Thanks for input in advance!
