So I've been on the hunt for some species camponotus and solenopsis last year I caught 3 solenopsis but this year nothing! I've been wondering is it to cold for solenopsis and what tempature usually camponotus likes. Thank you and "it is ant love forever".

With Solenopsis the nuptial flights are usually late April thru September maybe into October if it's still warm. And that is a reference for Alabama where I live. Not sure your temps.

It's only been 2 months of the year so far lol. Just wait awhile and don't give up the search.
