Termites look like ants. It's a pale, soft-bodied insect.
The termites than fly around looking to start new colonies do not. The soldier termites and the worker termites can bite, but do so only in defense, and they have no venom. It…'s unless you'll get bite unless you are disturbing a colony with your bare hands.
Termite larva are usually less than 1/10 of an inch long. They are white, pink or light brown in color. They also have very soft bodies, but otherwise look very similar to… an adult worker.
Look in the related link below for a picture of one.
Termite tunnels look very similar to the tunnels of ants seen in ant farms. This is because both insects have similar tunneling methods.
Yes they do. just like maggots and they live in the wood.
Termite droppings Look like normal tiny pellets that guinea pigs eat.
Like red and yellow sand particles.
There are many types of termites that call United States home. In the northeast area of the county the two most popular are Drywood Termites and Eastern Subterranean T…ermites. Drywood Termites * 3/8"-5/8", yellow/brownish. One wing. * These eat across the grain, eating all the wood, unlike subterranean termites. These termites usually are found in small amounts, but if not fully treated, the new infestations can cause serious damage. * Drywood Termites typically live in dry wood(low levels of moisture). Usually found in sub tropical areas, several species in the southwest. Colonies are found inside the wood. Eastern Subterranean Termites * Underground, they enter wood structures through small cracks, some lees then 1/16". However, if moisture is available these creatures can survive without being underground., 3/8", dark-brown/ blackish. Wings are long and can be milky/ transparent.
Yes they do look similar only a lot smaller and the big thing that should tip you off to the difference is that termites eat wood and a maggot will be on a dead animal.
Termites do not bite. Not other humans and animals, at least. They eat wood, but to eat wood, they must "bite" the wood to take it apart. So technically, yes, they bite,… but not living creatures.
Termites love dead wood, so it would already be rotting. You would see little lines down the wood and maybe holes into it. Much like ants in a log, just smaller.
Termite larvae are sometimes called nymphs. They hatch from eggs that are very small and the larvae are white with soft bodies and they are similar in shape to adult termi…tes, but smaller.

I PERSONALLY have expierienced it! It is a small bump, that is red, and VERY itchy! To get rid of it, you put perfume that has alcohol on your legs, and wear long socks wereve…r the fleas are. THIS is horrible, im 13, and i HAVE to deal with it :(
Termites absolutely have members in the colony who can bite, not only that they seem to use some kind of chemical weapon. I discovered this after leaving a pile of timber unde…r my house for a year and had to destroy the colony that colonized it. The damage to my arms and legs was severe and I decided to take a photo even though the attack was a month ago. The first three weeks there was low pain but blisters formed 5 or 6 times a day, then round blisters changed shape to a hard point and then burst. After a month the blisters are subsiding but have become much more painful especially when taking a shower it seems to affect my nerve endings at the location of the blisters. hope this is of scientific interest. firstname.lastname@example.org
Only in the most basic sense. Two ways to tell them apart: 1) Ants have a thin, "nipped in" waist - termites are thick waisted. 2) Termites are usually grayish/white. Ants rar…ely are that color - usually brown, black or red.
