Flying Ants Inundated South of Ukraine

For insects, this is a completely ordinary stage in their life cycle. Every summer, winged females and males leave their native anthills. Having found their “half”, the ants mate, after which the females go in search of a suitable place for the founding of a new anthill, and the males die. Hard male share!

Ant years occur every summer, most often in July or August. According to RIA Melitopol, this year black garden ants (Lasius niger) especially hatched due to the weather suitable for them - warm and humid. The mating season of black garden ants lasts only a few days.

Experts assure that flying ants are not dangerous for people.
