The species found in this area is the Eastern Subterranean termite. The worker can grow to a length of 1/8” to 3/16” and are typically a milky white to very light brown in color. There are several types of termites, which may be found in and around homes. Two of these are the worker and the swarmers. The major difference in these termites is that these termites have wings that are transparent.

These wings lay over themselves and are roughly twice the length of the body. Termite swarmers can often be confused with ant swarmers. The main difference is the termite has straight antennas and the ant has elbowed antennae. Termites have two pairs of wings in equal length and the ant’s second pair of wings is smaller.
