If you have an ant exterminator problem, you are probably determined to get rid of it, but before you begin you should first confirm whether your problems is, in fact, an ant problem rather than a termite problem. This is sometimes difficult as both insects look similar. There are, however, distinct differences between the two. When you look at an ant, you will see an insect with a segmented body, two sets of wings—a larger set of front wings and a smaller second set of back wings—and a set of antennas that are bent. When you look at a termite, you will notice a fluent body with two sets of equal length wings and fairly straight antennas.
After you have determined that your infestation is, in fact, ants, you need to determine what species of ant you will be fighting. This is important because the treatments for certain species varies.
