How to tell the difference between flying ants and termites?

By |August 1st, 2019|Categories: Termites, Uncategorized|Tags: |

Winged ants and winged termite adults look similar. Here are four easy ways to tell them apart.

  1. The front pair of wings on flying ants are larger than the hind wings.
  2. Both pairs of wings on winged termites are approximately the same size, and are much longer than the body of the termite.
  3. Flying ants have a thin waist.
  4. Winged termites do not have an obvious waist.

If you have difficulty identifying the insect, take a good cell phone photo and text it to our office.

Remember: Unless you see winged termites erupting from the wood in your house or from the soil near your foundation, they may have flown in from elsewhere. They can travel up to a mile, carried by the wind.
