Pest I.D.

Termite

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. The termite has a broad waist while the ant has a slender waist.

These beetles are black to gray in color and are 5/8 to 1 inch in length. They feed and live in wood.

Adult beetles emerge in summer to mate. The female then lays the eggs in bark or on lumber. The larva stage can then last up to 5 – 7 year before they pupate into an adult.

Carpenter ants live in colonies ranging from 3,000 to 15,000 ants.  They have are not all the same size, they can range from 1/4 – 5/8 in length.  In Missouri, they are the largest black ant.  Their main nest will generally be in trees or landscape timbers outside.  From there they will forage indoor looking for food and water, and sometimes establishing a satellite colony.  This will most often occur in areas of high moisture like windows or door, and bathrooms or kitchens.
