What time to find queens in the desert.

I live near Reno, NV. Kind of a desert in most areas.

So far the only time I've found a queen walking around has been at night. Otherwise I've only caught queens that were either digging their claustral chamber, or they were already dug in, and I had to dig them out.

Generally, with desert species, is the only time to catch them finding a place to dig at night? If you have experience with catching desert species, what were your tactics in catching them?
