Ants vs. Termites
Do I have ants or termites? This can be a very troublesome question. Some of the flying winged ants can resemble the winged-swarming termite.
The swarming of small, dark insects near or inside a building may worry people who believe their home is infested by termites.
Here are a few of the key differences between them:
|4 wings||4 wings|
|Segmented body||Non-segmented body|
|Elbowed antennae||Straight antennae|
|Wings do not break off easily||Wings break off easily|
|Front wings larger||Wings all same size|
|Wing veins visible||Wing veins not visible|
|Wings twice as long as body|
