 TERMITES VS. ANTS                                   

It is often difficult to determine the difference between termites and ants. When termites swarm they are often misidentified as "flying ants". This is a common mistake because termites look very much like ants. Most termite soldiers and workers are white or light colored with the soldiers heads being a darker amber color. Termites have two pair of wings (front and back) and are of almost equal length. Ants also have two pair of wings but the fore wings are much larger than the hind wings.
Also, termites have relatively straight antennae while ants have elbowed antennae.
  • Ants generally do not swarm at the same time as termites, but it can happen.
  • Termites have a thick waist and ants have a narrow waist
  • Termites have straight antennae and ants have elbowed antennae
  • Termites have four wings that are all equal in length
  • Ants have four wings, however, two are larger and two are smaller
  • Termite colonies eat non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Termites cause up to $2 billion in damage per year!
  • The total weight of all of the termites in the world is more than the weight of all the humans in the world.

 SIGNS HOME OWNERS SHOULD WATCH FOR                            

Dead termites or wings around windows, doors, heating vents, or in bath tubs and sinks, certain signs of termite activity.

Termite mud tubes on walls located outside or inside the structure. The tubes are either round of flat and usually measure at least 1/4 inch or wider. They look like their name - a tube of mud.

Damaged wood. Termites eat from the inside of the wood out, so damaged wood is sometimes very difficult to detect. "Hollow" sounding wood should be inspected for termite damage.

Live termites. Termites are sometimes found while doing home remodeling or repair. Worker termites are small, whitish creatures that will quickly move away when exposed to light.
