TERMITES live in colonies underground — they actually cannot live above ground for very long. In Spring, swarmers are pushed out to form a new colony. You may see them flying around and any aerosol insecticide will kill them until you can call in a professional to do a complete job.
Termite colonies have several layers to them and each termite has their own role within the colony. Worker termites are the actual wood destroyers — but they only do this to make tunnels for the rest of the colony to travel through.
How to tell a TERMITE from an ANT:
You may see what you think is ant and but it’s actually a termite. There is a difference but you need to know what you are looking for. Ants have bodies with three segments (two waists) and the antennae are bent or “elbowed”. Termites have a thick or nearly imperceptible waist and their antenna tend to be short and straight.
