Termites are destructive little creatures that can greatly diminish the structural integrity of your home or business.


 

A termite destroying a wood

What exactly is that swarm in your building?

There are several different types of flying insects that may find their way into your home. Of these, some are far more destructive than others. It can sometimes be difficult to recognize the type of bug that has made itself at home in your home or business.

It is important to make this distinction in order to know what should be done about them. Perhaps the most difficult – but important – distinction that must be made is between flying ants and termites.

While unpleasant, flying ants don't pose the harm to your home that termites do. You can tell the difference between the two insects by noting the details of their physical appearances:

  • Flying ants have pinched waists, while termites are broad throughout their bodies
  • Termites have straight antennae, while flying ants have antennae that are bent
  • Flying ants have much longer legs than do termites
  • Termites have two pairs of wings that are the same size, while flying ants have larger front wings
