From the research I have done Cremagastor fly in the fall. Around August or September. Other species I'm not sure about. Just look up there nuptial flight and you'll find the information you are looking for
Keeping:
Camponotus subbarbatus
Camponotus pennsylvanicus x2
Crematogaster ashmeadi
Crematogaster missouriensis
Formica pallidefulva x2
Formica subsericea x2
Lasius sp x2 (founding)
Pheidole sp. x4
Tetramorium caspitum x2
