This bug landed on my windshield. The picture doesn't really show what kind of bug she was. It kind of looked like a flying ant. Anyway, I was stopped at the light and she just kind of RIPPED her wings off one by one... Like she was saying - I - Just - Can't - Stand - These - Things - And - Must - Get - Rid - Of - Them! It was very, very strange. I was just like what the heck is going on??? Finally, the person behind me beeped because the light was green and she "flew" off the car when I started moving.

<<< UPDATE: Some newly mated queens will still have their wings attached but most will tear them off pretty quickly as they start to look around for a new nest because wings make the queens an easy target for predators to find. >>>
