Ant or Termite

Preview Ant or Termite?Hi everyone -

I saw 3 of these in one of my windows this morning - is this an ant or termite?

Any advice on how to manage?

Thanks in advance.

Mike

Definitely not a termite. The three segmented body proves that. It is either an ant or a type of wasp, possibly parasitic wasp. Ants have bent antennae with some rare exceptions and wasps have rounded or curled antennae, with some exceptions. I'm not sure yet which way I'm leaning but will stay on it. What country/state are you in? Location can help when ID'ing insects.
