Thousands of dead insects found in Sengkang

Liu Bei, Karen Ng Channel NewsAsia 11 Jun 12;

SINGAPORE: Tens of thousands of dead flying insects were found at Block 265-A in Sengkang on Monday morning.

The Singapore Nature Society said they could either be termites or flying ants.

It added these insects would usually find a place to start a new colony, after the rain.

They may have died because they couldn't find a suitable place.

Residents Channel NewsAsia spoke with said this isn't the first time something like this has happened.

Sengkang resident Rickee Ng said, "A more thorough investigation (is needed) to find the source of these termites or ants. It might actually be in somebody's home or (near) a water tank."
