Why Do I Have an Ant Infestation?
Ants are social insects – they live in colonies that contain three castes or groups: workers, queens, and males. As such, they are in constant search for an efficient location to base the colony. Sometimes it may be your home, as it offers a near unlimited food source for them and protection from the elements.
Many people mistake male ants for termites. Although they are similar in appearance, there are a few distinct differences:
- Ants have a constricted or “pinched” waist; termites lack this constriction.
- The forewing of ants is larger than the hindwing; termites have four wings of equal size.
- Ants have bent or “elbowed” antennae; termites have straight, beadlike antennae.
