Were those winged crawling things ants or termites?
In May we came home to find hundreds of little black winged ant like things on our den floor. The critters never were in the air, only on the floor. The exterminating salesman said it was termites and we purchased a contract. Now the technician who came today said if they were black than they were probably ants and not termites. Termites would be white or gray.
I thought that the flying or crawling things would be black in color when they left to find a new home and white in color when they live in their tunnels and forage for wood. The ones in my house were not in the air at all. The tech seems to be contradicting the salesman and while I feel protected by having a service contract with a company, it is also very expensive. I now wonder, did I have termites? These things did not look like any ants I have ever seen.
Can someone please shed light on my situation
