Bay Area Ants?

I'm new to this antkeeping business and I want to know if there are any ants out here in the Bay Area. I live towards the inner bay, the Antioch-Brentwood area, and I was wondering was some good hotspots are. I've heard some stuff about solenopsis and pogonomyrmex living in this area, but I've never been too sure.

Much love! I appreciate the help!
