Cat killed the majority of my ant colony...

Sadly, somehow my cat got inside of the closet where my ants are stored and completley decimated my tetramorium ant colony, now only two workers the queen and some eggs remain.. hopefully they can make a recovery.

Ant Nuptial Flights in Arizona

I live in the Anthem AZ area and was wondering if anyone knows the nuptial flight schedules of that area or surrounding area. I would also wish to know what species are flying so I can do my research and can be best prepared to house them.
