Flying Ants Invade Sioux Falls

Pic By Sprint Sioux Falls

I was looking out the window this afternoon about 5:00 p.m and couldn’t help but noticing a lot of insects flying around.  Loads of them.  The last time I could remember seeing something like this was a few years ago while were at a football practice with one of the kids. Turned out they were flying ants.

So, I mention it on the air, and then John, one of our Engineers here at the station calls and says…go out and look at the curb where you park the Kickin’ Truck.  So, out I went and sure as an ant bite on your … ankle there was a load of them.

It’s fall…I love watching nature segue from one season to the other. I snuck out with the Samsung Galaxy S4 that I use courtesy of Sprint in Sioux Falls and took an awesome pic.  I’m no Greg Latza, but look at the blade of grass and the detail in the cement and yes, flying ants.

You can’t make this stuff Up.  Flying ants…in Kickin’ Country!

Wait!  It gets better.  Check this out from Wikipedia!  (hey, it must be true!)

Nuptial flight is an important phase in the reproduction of most ant, termite and some bee species.[1] During the flight, virgin queens mate with males and then land to start a new colony, or, in the case of honey bees, continue the succession of an existing hived colony.
