Bug guessing game

The kids found this down in the creek. Tiny wings, about as long as my phone is wide, and ugly as a mother-in-law.

Is it a termite?

  1. Ooohh, I know what it is. And I don’t know if it is male or female because it isn’t an adult yet. It has wind pads, but not wings yet. The wings will be much larger. The adult form doesn’t live in the water but it usually lives near the water. Do you want any more clues?

  2. Not a termite. Termites look like ants with wings, but they drop their wings when they get to where they’re going.

  3. ooh, Kim is sure a smarty pants. showing off her smarts, but not telling you what it is.

    I wouldn’t believe her about the “wind pads” though, just between you and me and the internet.

  4. My wife is upset that you compared that immature insect to your offspring’s grandmother (s).
