Many ask about what a termite looks like vs what a flying ant looks like. Here are a few differences in the two:
There are 3 easy ways to tell flying ants and termites apart:
Termite wings are all equal in length and extend well past the abdomen. Ants have wings which are unequal in length and generally end at the tip of the abdomen.
Antennae on termites are straight and bead-like, but on ants they are elbowed.
Ants have a pinched waist, but termites have no constriction in the body and are more streamlined.
