Want to confirm that this is a termite before calling exterminators - Reticulitermes

These were in my parents home (on the floor, by the hundreds). I've seen swarming termites and the wings are typically everywhere and make a huge mess. There were no visible wings with these insects. Just need to get a confirmation that an exterminator needs to be called.

Sorry for the quality. Feel free to delete them if they're of no use to the guide.

Termite is correct
