Late June- August, with peak flights in July.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Last week in southern ontario we had a huge formica nuptial flight. So nows the time to keep those eyes out
Ants are life's most successful invaders. Understand and respect that power.
