Ok, so this isn't about ants but WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A QUEEN AND KING TERMITE??????? I managed to capture 3 alates and now I am not sure what's a king or queen...

I think the bigger one is the queen and the smaller one is the king.

There are other features that distinguish queens from kings but I'm no termite expert so I don't know.
