This morning we had a great many of these hanging around a tree in our orchard. They were continually taking small flight, and then very briefly landing on each other. There were perhaps 50-70 of them, but no sign of any nest.
Pete thought maybe they were mating, but I thought that only the queen was mated. We don’t know much about their behaviour though so would be grateful in anyone could shed any light on this activity. There were enough of them in a small area to put me off accessing my figs for fear of attack. Pete says this has been going on for a few days now. Any ideas from you entomology buffs out there?
