You may have found insects in or around the house and you’re unsure whether its a termite or ant.
Termites were often called “white ants” because they were small, there were lots of them together and they were whitish instead of black/brown/reddish.
The easily discernible differences—ants have elbowed antennae, a distinct ‘waist’ between the thorax and abdomen and the flying reproductive ants have a forewing much larger than the hind wing.
Termites shed their equal-sized wing shortly after completing their flight. Reproductive termites and all ants have eyes, but the termite workers and soldiers do not.
