Are You Battling Flying Termites or Ants?

Winged invaders in your home can be more than just a nuisance; they can be a sign of a larger pest problem. But don’t worry, figuring out whether you’re dealing with flying termites or flying ants is the first step, and we at Better Termite & Pest Control are experts in identifying and eradicating these pests.

Flying Termites (Alates)

  • Appearance: Look for thick waists, equal-sized wings, and straight antennae.
  • Damage: Known to cause severe structural damage due to their wood-eating habits.
  • Treatment: Our termite treatment plan includes thorough inspections, the use of termiticides, and ongoing prevention strategies.

Flying Ants

  • Appearance: Noticeable pinched waists with elbowed antennae and wings of unequal length.
  • Nuisance Level: Although less damaging than termites, they can be a sign of an ant colony nearby.
  • Treatment: We provide targeted solutions to exterminate the ant colony, including baiting systems and perimeter treatments.
