More about Termites  

Termites are commonly known, as "white ants," they are only distantly related to the ants.

Subterranean termite homes are usually formed in soil. Within these mounds, termites build elaborate tunnel systems and mud tunnels through which they access aboveground food sources. Drywood termites live within the wood they consume and oftentimes infest walls and furniture.

Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung. 

Termites live in colonies that, at maturity, number from several hundred to several million individuals. When a colony has matured, winged, swarming termites can be seen around windows and doors. Winged termites are highly attracted to sources of light. After mating, these termites locate a new breeding site and create another colony, spreading infestations throughout multiple locations.

All termites require four things to survive — food, moisture, shelter and optimal temperature. Unfortunately, all homes and buildings, regardless of their construction type, can provide these ideal conditions for termite infestation.

How can I tell the difference between Termite and Ants?

This can be a very troublesome question. Some of the flying winged ants can resemble the winged-swarming termite. Here are some ways do identify the difference between the physical resemblance.

  1. While both species have four wings, the termite wings are all the same size and the ant wings have noticeably larger wings in the front as compared to the hind pair.
  2. Termites have an almost straight antennae, the ants antennae are elbowed.
  3. Termite wings are twice as long as the body.
  4. Ants appear distinctly segmented, because of their thin-waisted appearance. Termites have a broad-waisted appearance.
  5. Carpenter ants can be much larger, up to one inch in length.
