Termites look like ants with wings and a tail
Ants with wings... are just that, ants with wings. They evolve to move on to a new nest and build a new colony. Sometimes what you think might be an ant with wings is a termite or carpenter ant, or vice versa. But check out some pictures and you'll see the difference. But gnats don't look remotely like ants. Seriously...
What is the inch long colored bug in your flower bed that looks like a big 4 legged ant but is not a ant?
The Crazy Caribbean ant is red. It only looks like it has white stripes on its abdomen after it eats. This happens because the membranes that connect the segments of the ant together are light in color, and after it feeds, this membrane gets stretched out and looks like it has stripes on it. Its scientific name is Nylanderia pubens and a lot of them can be found in Florida.
