TERMITES are commonly but erroneously called "white ants."
Actually they are more nearly related to cockroaches than to ants, but their general appearance and subterranean habits have given strong support to the popular designation.
They may be divided into two major groups from an economic point of view, viz., wood-dwelling and earth-dwelling termites.
