once a year the ants fly with wings ,now they may be of either sex but it is for one day only ,if they are causing major trouble as in aphids which they farm,use a nettle spray.

they will breed in any standing water,they will get in any tiny opening and water left lying about in pots or buckets will encourage them to breed that s why its important to empty any water lying about in pots and empty the water butt  ever so often.
