Dear Mario,
These are neither ants nor bees, but rather, they are flies.  More specifically, they are March Flies and we believe they are in the genus
Plecia whose members are commonly called Lovebugs because they appear in large swarms that contain numerous mating pairs.  More on Lovebugs can be found on BugGuide and on University of Florida Entomology site.
