Queen Hunting on Ottawa, Canada

Hello, AntsCanada Family!

I am just starting to get into ant-keeping thanks to Michael's youtube channel. I was wondering if any fellow Canadians could help me out in looking for queens here in the suburbs or even in the brush. I am on the hunt for Tetramorium Immigrans. As they are a very beginner-friendly species. I have looked around parks, mostly around sidewalks for any queens that may have already mated. If I cannot find a Pavement Ant queen, my secondary species to be on the lookout for is any genus of the Camponotus.

If anyone can give me tips on how to catch them/where to look for them, it would be greatly appreciated.
