I’ve got some swarming bugs in the bathroom by the sink. I think they might be ants but I’m afraid they could be termites. how can I tell the difference?
Swarming termites will tend to drop their wings and walk around in pairs after awhile. Also, they have bodies which are mostly long and two segmented. Ants have bodies which will have three distinct body parts and they won’t drop their wings. Additonally, ants will have antennae that are elbowed whereas the termite antennae will be long and straight. We have more details in our termite control article but if you’re unsure, send us a sample and we’ll let you know.
