What is the Difference Between White Ants and Termites?

There is no difference between white ants and termites. They are the same insect but the names, ‘white ants’ and ‘termites’ are used interchangeably(*1).

Are Termites a Type of Ant?

Interestingly, white ants (termites) are in no way related to ants(*1). They are more closely related to cockroaches. One thing termites and ants have in common is their caste structure. Like ants, they are a social insect with kings, queens, workers, and soldiers. Termite fossils date back 100 million years, making them the oldest insects with a caste system(*2). Being that old, it is no wonder they are so good at adapting and surviving!
