I have been walking on side walks for more than 18 hours now over the past two weeks. I haven't found a single ant. I am not sure if a sidewalk is actually the best place to look anymore. Where should I be looking for my queens?

I'm really just looking for anything besides camponotus. I live in Oregon, in the West, not the desert side
