I know there is a mating flight thread already, but I thought we could get a bit more specific than just "North America." These would be flights occurring within the USA. I thought I would start with where I live, Michigan:

 

January: None

February: None

March: None

April: Prenolepis imparis

May: Camponotus 

June: Camponotus, Formica 

July: Formica, Lasius, Tetramorium, Pheidole

August: Lasius, Formica, Pheidole, Crematogaster

SeptemberMyrmica,Ponera

October: None

November: None

December: None

 

Any Michigan anters, please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Also, this thread is open to other states as well, so anters in other states can put the nuptial flight times for genera in their home states as well.


  • Ant_Dude2908, CatsnAnts and Antkid12 like this

Camponotus novaeboracensis > 1 queen with eggs.

 

Ponera pennsylvanica > 1 queen.

 

Formica glacialis or subaenescens > 9 workers

I'm not going to bother typing out all the species I see flying in TN. Too many to do all at once, plus some fly year round...
