Starting off in Miami FL

So im as green as i could possible be when it comes to ant keeping , Ive done some reading and have watched a few videos on how to get started, but am a solid LVL1.

Im seeking advice on how to get my hands on a ant queen where I live in Miami FL . I honestly would be happy in just buying a queen as I'm normally quite occupied and cant imagine I'll be able to free up to much time to wonder around with my eyes glued to the floor looking for ants lol. In any case if worst comes to worst im willing to try and catch one. Only problem i have is im not sure where to start. Particularly i have no idea when queens have there nuptial flights here nor where im most likely to find them. From what I've read there are a few species of ants in Florida, though im interested in the none stinging ants. Caribbean Crazy Ants seems like nice ones to have granted i can find them.

Anyone have advice to point me in the right direction?
