Check out the video to see the strangeness of this sight. Rivers of ants, basically. Any guesses or explanations on why there are so many above above ground are welcome!

There are 'genetic' eruptions in the insect world as in the Amphibian and other worlds, not always explainable ~ their worlds' so much different than ours. And there's a cute video on the same slate as yours ~ Kids pretending to be ants ~ go marching one by one...

Good question, Heather! It could be hive migration! Another explanation could be that their home had been flooded due to amount of rain we've had recently. I checked back on them today and the traffic has died down considerably. I think it was good fortune that I got to see them when I did!

Hive migration? Is there such a thing?
