According to Rentokill: “In the insect world, swarms of insects such as flying ants, termites and some species of bees are referred to as nuptial flight, and is the most important phase of the reproductive cycle.”

However, it is not known as to why ants swarm in summer rather than spring.

After the ants have successfully mated, the male flying ant dies and the queen locates a new place to start her new colony.

They then start working on building the nest, with the location for this new nest depending on the species.
