As I type this, the huge Lasius niger nest in the back garden's yucca bush is swarming with hundreds of workers and alates, many of which have already took off (Or got caught in the spider webs cunningly wove right above the nest). Indeed, I have just had to shoo a princess out of the room who flew straight through my window.
Odd that they should fly right after the hot and humid days. Maybe the cloudiness down here is helping.
The flavus queens are still busy roaming around under the big stone in my garden. No sign of them flying, I have counted about 10 of them. They will get consumed back in the nest if they don't hurry up and find the right moment
