We are renting this property.
We are renting this property. Have dogs/cat/bird/snakes.
Any ideas on what they will do and what I have to worry about? We JUST moved in.

 
Well... they're not going to harm the animals.
However, termites can be destructive to wooden structures. The ones you saw were probably members of a mating swarm. I have no way of knowing if the swarm originated from your property. It's quite possible that the colony is located elsewhere and a couple of wayward individuals simply happened to get into your house. If you're concerned, you may want to bring this to the attention of your landlord and/or contact your local Extension Service.
