Has anyone seen any Trachymyrmex Septentrionales ants in northern Kentucky? They're the northernmost fungus growing ant, with some even spotted in New York, but they're small and rare. I've been looking around for queens as they're supposed to be flying from May to September, but I haven't seen anything.

I found a Camponotus alate in my house yesterday, still flying, though. Southern Ontario.
