About the Subterranean Termite

Identified under the same 3 distinctions as Formosan Termites, Subterranean Termites are very similar. The swarmers are dark brown to black in color and have 2 pairs of wings nearly the length of their body. The workers are wingless, and ¼ inch or less and beige or cream in color. Soldiers are also wingless, with large mandibles. Their color is also cream or white, but their heads are dark brown in color.
