The first sign of termites that a homeowner might notice could be a swarm of insects inside the house during the spring months. However, winged ants swarm also. How can you tell whether the insects are ants or termites?
A. Termites have no apparent waist and straight antennae. Though the insects are similar there are differences. Both have two sets of wings, but the ant wings are generally two different sizes. The termite appears to have a straight body line and the ant appears to have a waist.
