Ant bodies have a thorax (middle section) that is constricted looking and clearly defined.
Ant antennae have a distinct elbow shape with an elongated first segment.
Ants have two sets of wings – the front pair being larger than the rear pair and just slightly bigger than its body.
Termite bodies have no visible waist. It’s just one continuous piece that is thick and ribbed.
Termite antennae are short and straight.

Termites often build mud tubes, which are small and thin mud structures that connect the ground to your house or other wooden structure that they love to feast on! If the mud tubes are moist, tunnels are active.
You can also inspect wood structures in your home for signs of decay by gently tapping on them. If a solid beam sounds hollow, chances are you have live termites!
Finally, a physical sign that you’re facing termites in your home are discarded wings. Reproductive termites shed their wings once they find a new place to set up a colony. Oh no!
