Swarmers (winged) ants (or termites) don't eat - they are just for mating.

Subterranean termite swarmers just want to mate. After that, the males die and the females want to get underground. If they can't, they die, all on their own.

Ant swarmers (of any kind) just want to get outside. If they can't, they die also. Although ant swarmers can live a lot longer than termite swarmers since they are terrestrial. Either one is absolutely harmless and do not eat anything.

If you can't find out EXACTLY where they (the ant swarmers) are coming from, don't worry about it. It is altogether possible that this is the only time you will see them.

Magical ants lol
