Rix Quinn’s Minute Story: Termites and ants

Have you ever thought about termites? They look like ants.

To tell them apart, I put the bug on a piece of wood. If the creature walks away, it’s an ant.

If it flies off and leaves a hole in the wood, it’s a termite. And if it flies away carrying the wood, it’s a termite with superpowers.

Here’s some advice: If you keep firewood in your yard, don’t store it near the house. Termites flock to it, and stage an eating frenzy they call “bark in the park.”

Remember that a termite lays several thousand eggs a day, many more than a chicken. However, you can sell hen eggs, and a chicken won’t eat your house.

So, if you find a suspicious flying bug, look him up in an insect guide. If he eats the page while you’re reading it, he’ll make a lousy pet.
