Ants or Termite?


Winged termites are usually, but not always, smaller, about 1/4" in length.  They appear to have two body segments, straight antennae, and two pairs of equally long wings.  Ants have three body segments with a narrow waist, elbowed antennae and a longer pair of front wings.



Termite Prevention
* Don’t let water pool around your home’s foundation. Termites like that!
* Never leave wood scraps in the yard for them to snack on.
