Flying ants swarmed a hotel room in southwestern China.

In the video, filmed in Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province on April 22, hundreds of flying ants buzzing around after a tourist opened the bathroom door in his hotel room.

The tourists said: "Lots of flying ants fly into our room in a hotel we stay in Xishuangbanna tonight." According to the hotel staff, Xishuangbanna is in the tropical climate and the male ants with wings fly out to breed when it rains.

The flying ants are not poisonous.

The hotel changed the room for the tourist and also gave him an airport drop-off service for free as compensation.
