EcoFusion Pest Control
Carpenter Ants and Termites are both wood destroying insects. They cost home owners more then 5 billion dollars in damage each year. Heres an easy way to determine between a termite and an ant.
- Carpenter ants have body segment, they both have wings, and then you have antennae.With ants you focus on the body segments. The body segments are clearly separated between the head and the back region, also known as the head, thorax, and abdomen.The wings in the front are bigger than the wings in the back, also called the forewings.The antennae have an elbow bend
- Termite’s body segment has a head and tail region and there is no clear distinct separation between those two. So you kind of have a head and a really large body. Both wings are large and both are the same size.And then when you go to the antennae they are very tiny and beaded and they point strait out.
That’s how you tell the difference between ants and termites.
