What is the difference between a termite and a flying ant?

There are 3 ways to tell termites and flying ants apart:

Wing size

Termite wings are all equal in length and extend well past the abdomen. However, ants have wings which are unequal in length and generally end at the tip of the abdomen.

Antennae shape

Antennae on termites are straight and beadlike, but on ants they are elbowed.

Waist size

Ants have a pinched waist (abdomen), but termites have no constriction in the body and are more streamlined.
