Flying Ant Survey - United Kingdom
When you see flying ants please make a note of the time, date, location, weather conditions, whether they're flying and the habitat found (e.g. paving, lawn, woodland), then submit your records. It's as simple as that! *Edited by Project Noah management team in line with user-v=created mission rules. Sign in to join mission
Flying ants commonly appear on exactly the same day in different locations in the UK, but sometimes they come out over a period of days or even weeks. We need your help to study whether flying ants appear at the same time in different parts of the UK, and to investigate what weather conditions encourage ants to fly. We've already got some good records, many of them from inside houses. Record your flying ant sightings and help us research what conditions determine when they choose to go on their nuptial flight (mating flight)!
