Our editorial staff left Campbell, Ohio many years ago to move to Los Angeles, but we still visit several times a year. This is a Flyng Ant, the reproductive males and females that swarm and begin new colonies. Flying Ants are known as alates. Ants swarm when the conditions are right, often on a warm, sunny day right after a good rain. It sounds like there is an existing colony in the part of the yard where the swarm issued. As an aside, whenever we are in town, we are sure to stop in the Struthers location of Belleria Pizza for a Brian Hill style pie.
Thank you for responding so quickly! After googling awhile, I was sure of the same findings. The Hot Shot seemed to have worked, as I dont see any left. You are quite the genius! Yesterday was our first sunny day after about three of rain! Rain again today lol That’s Ohio, I suppose! Wow, what a small world, Campbell is right around the corner! As for pizza, do you mean Brier Hill style? Delicious! I think that will be dinner this evening! Haha
