Termites are called “white ants” because of their pale coloring and physical similarities to ants. However, ants have a narrow waist that segments their bodies, termites do not. Also ant antennae are segmented, while termite’s antennae are straight. Termites, like ants, have winged reproductive forms. The king and queen termites are large, over one inch in length, whereas the worker and soldier termites are smaller.
