Get Rid of Those Pesky Ten-Ants
Summer is a great time to relax in the Sun – unless you have flying ants to consider
You may have suddenly started seeing a flock of flying ants around your home or your business in recent weeks. You may be wondering why they’ve suddenly appeared and how you’re going to get rid of the irritating critters.
Believe it or not, at some point in June or July, there is a day that experts call Flying Ant Day. This is where all the ants that have the sole job of reproducing end up growing wings and swarming with each other.
Whilst this Flying Ants Day may seem something out of a horror movie, not much is known about why the ants swarm together and grow wings, but many predict this involves the warm and humid weather. All the fertile ants begin flying and breed mid-air, eventually landing to create a new colony. Here are some more facts about flying ants you might not have known:
- Once the flying ants have mated they lose their wings – this is so they can start a new colony and reproduce.
- If there is one respectable thing about the ants, once they grow wings, they depart one after each other in a very orderly fashion.
- They can make seagulls and other predatory birds have a drunken effect. The chemicals inside of the ants cause a reaction within the birds. So what out for drunk seagulls.
