Nuptial Flights in Sydney Australia

I found a lot of small black alates and an iridomyrmex one on some bricks. Also, do ant colonies go hyper when it is nuptial season or is that just the rain?

Probably both as most ants will fly after it has rained mostly due to the ground being easier to dig their nests from what i've heard and seen. Lots of Iridomyrmex purpereus colonies were getting ready to fly here but the wind was too strong.
