So this year I had no success catching queens and am wondering if I am too late. I love in cape town south Africa.also we're in a droit so I wonder if they haven't flown because of little rain.

Drought will often delay nuptial flights. They will either release alates soon after the next rain, or they will consume them and try again next year.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
