Because ants and termites can look so much alike, the best way to tell the difference is to have one of our trained pest control pros come to your home to identify the pest.
There are 3 telltale signs:
- Ants have elbowed antennas — termite antennas are straight
- Ants have a pinched waist — termites appear to have no waist
- Ants have 4 wings; the front 2 are longer than the rear 2 and appear to have veins. Termites’ 4 wings are all equal length and appear to be translucent.
