No pictures came out.
Describe what your seeing.

No clue, is that an outside wall?
Leave it like it is and call an extermiator and have them take a look at it. They will inspect the whole house for free.
I'd not call Terminex or Okin, stick with a local company.

Could be wasps or bees? Get a stud finder and see if the hole lines up with a stud or an open bay---

I wouldn't ignore this one---

This is in my bedroom on the wall. Should I call a termite company or some sort of exterminator that deals with insects and ants? TY!
