Black Garden Ant

These ants only fly out of the nest to mate under specific weather conditions – and when they do, they all do together! The males then die off and the young queens will seal themselves underground to establish new colonies where they will live for up to 15 years.

The first workers are small, they must break out to the surface and find food quickly for the queen. Black ants are excellent farmers, tending flocks of aphids that they milk for honeydew.
