Hi, in the mornings and afternoons, I always see these fly like bugs(sorta a cross between a small black queen ant and a fly) swarming constantly in one spot about 0 - 2.5 metres above the ground in a ball over grass constantly, not seemly doing anything productive. I'm kinda curious if anyone knows what these bugs are, and why they swarming like that doing seemingly nothing? Thanks oh btw this is in Australia, im not sure about other countries of different climates having anything like this. and the bugs are about a millimetre long and quarter of a millimetre wide. black body and clear wings, like a flies.

Aren't they called marchflies? Definately procreating, I mean, who wouldn't?
you're thinking of mayflies, it's too late in the year for them (they're called mayflies for a reason), and they're too big for the description.
