Swarms of flying ants to be expected in Ireland over the coming days

According to the UK Met Office, over the coming days Ireland should expect swarms of flying ants.

The swarm, moving from the west to the east, was mistaken for rain on the Met Office’s radar.

The Met Office tweeted “During the summer ants can take to the skies in a mass emergence usually on warm, humid and windless days #flyingantday”.

The insects take to the skies for their annual event to form new colonies.
