Over the last 2 days we have been seeing thousands of flying ants as they mated from 6pm to 7pm. Jenny picked up a few of the newly mated queens, as there were hundreds wandering around our estate within a few minutes walk away. I haven't seen any Lasius flavus mating yet, but they will be soon as we have plenty of nests nearby.
