Myrmica incompleta & Murmica sp.

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I am looking to catch Myrmica incompleta & Murmica sp. in the next 3 months during their nuptial flight, whenever that is. Could anyone tell where I could catch queens once nuptial flight begins and if someone could tell when their nuptial flight is that would be amazing.
Thank you

Thank you, I will keep this in mind during nuptial flight. Do you know when nuptial flight is for them?

looks like you can find them as early as April to October in north america but considering were you live the majority will fly in august through September. i would still look at other times just in case plus their are many other cool speices :D
