Ant Mating Behavior
Most ants are females. In fact only the princes are males. Nearing mating season the queen produces large amounts of male unfertilized egg to cope up with the short supply of males and ensure successful breeding. During mating seaon a number of ants swarm outside their colony to take part or root for for the "marriage fligt" wherein prince and princess ants take off from their colony , mate in the air and fly off to a new place to start a new colony. The only role of male ants is to mate with the queen and they die alone shortly after mating.
