I live in Northern Central California and noticed millions of ants in my garden swarming on top of each other today. I have uploaded pictures of the phenomenon. Please tell me what you guys think. Could this be a sign of an earthquake or something like that? I will upload more pictures soon.

Interesting pictures, although a bit out of focus. Were they doing anything or just hanging out? Was it near the coast or any big towns nearby?

They were all crawling all over each other, the swarm itself was about 3-5 cmm thick of ants. The nearest towns are either Modesto to the North or Fresno to south. And no beachs or coast, thats about 2 hours the west.

Whoa, I grew up in Modesto.... Very odd, about the ants. They were all just sorta gathered there in like a 'pool' of themselves? A pond of ants??

Very weird... Unless something was spilled or dead right there...



EDIT: Whoa!!! Ant Wars?!!? I've never seen such a thing, but this is fascinating as hell

That seems plausible but generally when I see two different colonies, which I have plenty in my yard, they look different. They are usually at least have a small size difference if anything, but these ants all look identical to each other. I just went back out to check it out and I couldn't spot any dramatically different ants.

*EDIT*
And yes Nemesis, it is literally just a pool of ants in that one spot, and nothing to my knowledge has been spilled or killed there. And the rest of my animals, 8 cats and 2 dogs, are not acting unusual.

I don't think anyone can afford to ignore obvious signs of an impending quake, this is exactly the type of warning that China's people are saying now 'why didn't the government heed these signs'. Has there been any body of water missing or moved lately? Any other sign from pets? You should check out Kattraxx's threads on earthquakes, inform yoursef.

If you have two deferent colonies of the same species they will fight.
It might be a large yard we think because of their size but they like us fight over resources

Random idea...


FRY THEM, BURN 'EM UP!! That would be amusing?

Hey get a magnifying glass
no! not to burn them I'll bet you find a lot of them locked in a death grip on each other!

Actually the few that were still alive were really grabbing onto someone else and it looked as if they were "hitting" or "punching" each other. And if you notice in my photo thats zoomed out the fullest, you can see the swarm was right in the middle of a walking path and there were ants on both sides walking towards the swarm.

Thanks Slayer!

Hey I like to watch them fight yes it happens yearly where we live you know that if one colony defeats another they will take the unborn eggs and grow them as members of the victorious colony

while that link was extremely interesting, i don't think that is it. What i saw was a stationary "mob". It was not moving towards any direction.

Ants are crazy. They're so strong for their size, they could eat us if they wanted to. I was watching a documentary on this type of ant, and it went and attacked blind ants and killed the queen and they thought the new ant was the queen? something like that. They take down animals and stuff too, they're crazy little buggers.

I personally reccomend that you look in the upper right hand corner of the first picture and ask yourself how "ants" do that.

I also live in Northern CA and I have noticed this year more ants then usual. Especially the carpenter ants. We had our yard and house sprayed a few weeks ago. It seemed to have helped the spider problem but the ants are still going strong. They are destructive little suckers. They have made tunnels under our driveway and in spots it is crumbling and sinking from them.

I think it's just a battle between two groups, nothing to do with earthquakes. I live in Michigan and this happens at a certain spot in my driveway about once or twice a year, for the past several years. Happened again yesterday, with millions of ants involved. Looks like coffee grounds moving around until you get up close. It sure is weird.
