    Yep, it was like a street party here last night.

    Everyone out in the road running around under the street light catching bugs by hand. Amazing that after 700 years of practice they still catch them by hand.

    You could well be right but termites are sometimes called white ants so I thought I might get away with it.

    ants and termites both have the same swarming/mating behaviour
