I noticed some of the common little red ants out in the backyard swarming, and I was wondering if the activity of the ants in any way reflects the possible activity of the bees?
Do ants swarm during the same time frame that honeybees are more likely to swarm?
<disclaimer: I know that ants and bees are different in many ways, just looking for natural signs to make me aware of anything else that may be occuring>
I don't know the answers.
What I DO know is that ants and bees are close relatives.
