Gloucestershire professor reveals flying ants study findings
A HUGE study into the movements of flying ants has been unveiled by a University of Gloucestershire academic.
Prof Adam Hart, an ecologist and science communicator at the university, has presented the findings of a study into the flying ants and their movements this summer.
When the UK's garden ants took to the air in spectacular style, the Society of Biology received over 6,000 reports as part of its first flying ant survey.
The survey revealed not one but two flying ant days.

Prof Hart said: "Each year males and virgin queens take part in remarkable mating flights. So-called 'flying ant day' is one of the rituals of our summer.
"We found a relationship between flying ant swarms and weather conditions, which we expected, and geographical variation, which we didn't expect."
