Winged male alate / Drone ant
Drones are the only male ants in a colony. They are born from un-fertilized eggs.
Drones are not like typical ants. They don’t do any work in their nests, and they look more like wasps than ants.
Once they have mated, they die. Drones will only survive a few months during the mating season. Their life is short lived, but like all ants, they play a crucial part in the ant life cycle.
