Return of the flying ants!

IT’S that time of the year again when flying ants invade airstreams – a wonder to some, terrifying to others. In recent weeks, reports of flying ants have been swarming social media and news outlets, as people documents their ‘terrifying’ accounts with the flighty insects.

However, according to Tallaght conservationist Collie Ennis, this natural phenomenon should be appreciated and not feared, as the ants are only searching for a new home.

According to Collie, it’s breeding season for ants so, after the worker ants clear a runway out of the nest, the flying ants take off in search of a new home.
