I don't recall exactly how ants start new colonies . . . but in the final colony I don't believe there's a king the way there is with termites, and I don't think they have drones the way bees do. Maybe something in between? A nuptial mating flight, then the male goes on his way and the female is off to start her own colony, forever fertile?

C'mon, who knows ants around here?

they do mate while in flight, and then i think the male dies, the female finds a spot digs a whold makes 10 workers in the first year ( they are tiny from lack of nutrition ) they feed her then next year she makes between 30 and 100 and it keeps going untill she creates some female queens and some males do do the flight thing and find themselves a colony, i think they used to only make like one queen, but apparently recently fire ants are going mad and making lots and people are freaking cus there taking over lol

I think the males are only alive for the mating *flying part* and then die after mating. The female gives birth to her first lot of workers.
When she is begining to lose her fertility she births only females *new queens*...when they all go up to fly again she dies...thats what I gather
