Top-peak temperatures amidst summer normally trigger mating in Common Black Ants. In Scotland, it usually falls onto July.
Spring of 2015 was quite cold and start of the summer has been slow therefore a delay in the life-cycle of garden ants is likely. While ants’ nests are now showing developmental progress - with eggs, larvae and pupae present, there are no signs of the flying form of ants observed yet (aspiring queens and ant males mating on the wing). Where foraging ant workers are visible now, swarms of flying ants may be expected soon.
