Is this termite or ant

One thing I notice is

There is a hole in thus window screen, there is no hole on the screen of the other window in the same room, that window doesn't Jane any ant. 

The window with ants is close to a tree outside the house also. 

Hard for me to say just from a few photos but I'm leaning towards this being a type of ant. I'm also leaning towards saying if you have this many ants coming in through your window you probably need to replace the windows and screens (especially if they're older). There are some quick fixes (and forgive me for this probably not being the most environmentally friendly solution but...); if you put some Spectracide down (both around the perimeter of the house and by the window panes) that should do the trick. You'll see a lot of products overlap for ants and termites -- though it can be admittedly harder to get rid of termites, especially with older homes. I hope everything works out for you! @Zocky Zhang
