flying-ant-iconOver three years we received over 10,000 records for our Flying Ant Survey, which helped researchers investigate why ants appear to take flight at exactly the same time every summer. In the summer of 2015 we used pictures and information from social media to create a video of flying ant appearances across the UK. #flyingantsurvey
