This looks like a termite swarmer (reproductive caste). This month is when Formosan termites swarm (at night), and the coloration of this termite is consistent with that type of termite (one of the most damaging species). I recommend that you have a local pest control company do an inspection. Keep these termites to show them, if you still have them. https://citybugs.tamu.edu/factsheets/household/termites/
