Comparing Termites & Ant Swarmers
People often confuse termites with ants because of their similar appearance. There are, however, several key differences between flying ants and termites:
- Termites have four wings of equal length: ants also have four wings: however the front pair of wings is longer than the back pair.
- Termites have straight antennae: ants’ antennae are elbowed.
- Termite bodies are shaped like a torpedo: ants’ are shaped like an hourglass.
- Termites do not sting or bite: ants can and do, so be careful.
