Didn't twitterwebs-based SCIENCE prove conclusively that there's no one day for flying ants a couple of years back?  (AIUI they're locally synchronised by the weather conditions.)

Not seen any here in Middle Earth.  We're still on those annoying little black fly things.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Down here in East Sussex I was beset by them when cycling on Monday fwiw.

No one day but it seems to have bothered some Sarf Londonton Big Bat Ball Game players today, I see.

Makes sense, seeing as they built a roof to stop Cliff Richard from singing.

Spare the poor wee buggers a thought, they die afterwards.

The flying ones, that is.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
