is it the temperature and humidity or the position of the sun? Is it possible for nuptial flights to begin early?

it depends on the species but most ants flight at the right time of year and go by daylight(like flying at night)
after that it depends in humidity temperature and a pheromone that goes in the air

Those are the Factors that we think trigger flights
keeper of
3 tetremorium queens
2 C. pennsylvanicus
1 C novaeboracensis
1 tapinoma sessile colony
