Termites and ants are pretty much the same biologically, their main difference being the pinched body.
If the body of the flying ants you are seeing are straight then you are seeing termites.
If the body of the flying ants are pinched and contain segmented body parts, those are ants.
Another way to tell flying ants from flying termites would be the color of their head. If the color of the head is red and has a straight body it is a drywood termite swarmer
