I live in Mumbai-India, and since theree's a rather lack of info online on nuptial flights here, i was wondering if anyone knows the Nuptial Flight Schedules of ants in this region? (Especially Camponotus)

Calm the caps, it's unattractive to the topic and is not pleasant to look at.

Hit "Like This" if it helped.

Camponotus or Carpenter Queen Ants are usually found near public toilets and dhabas near lights in the night. The best tiem to look for them is when the rains are just beginning to fall and especially on the night when it has rained well during the day but was sunny after the rain. Or if there was rain last night and today is sunny, then also it is a great time to go queen ant hunting. They are commonly spotted during the onset of rainy season in India.

Hey man, I went on vacation to a neighbor country of India. There were some carabera/pheidole flights in June.
