What ant species are flying right now in California, specifically the Bay Area? I heard that the Bay Area isn't a good place to find queens since the California coast has an invasive species, yet I've found multiple male elates of different species, but no luck with any queens. Thanks.

I don't know about the bay area specifically, but in california, we typically see honey pot ants flying in April and June, fire ants flying in may, carpenter ants flying in June, and argentine and crazy ants which don't have nuptial flights (these two species are invasive). Hope you find one! ;)
