Hunting grounds...

So, I love u guess you would say in a rural area, sorta in town but also have all kinds of trees around and plenty of places for ants to be lurking. My question is, to hunt for queens, is my typical area ok or would it be better to venture away a bit to the country side were it's less touched by humans? My best friend has tons of wooded land but just out of curiosity, what would be my best option in location for hunting queens? Of course I have a general idea but I guess I'm just looking for someone's opinion that's been doing this a lot longer than I have :-)

Heya, I live in a rural area with bush and forest close by but I live in a town none the less.

I have caught 8 queens the past week and I simply walk down a footpath and look for queens, they contrast well against concrete and colonies are all
On the side grass bit. That's where I catch my queens but yea.

Are the sidewalks down the sides of the road? I've been walking this road behind my house that's not traveled that much with no luck just yet. I may try walking down the sidewalk by my house tomorrow. We had some good rain yesterday and tomorrow it's supposed to be like 80º so I'm hoping to get lucky.
