Tampa Bay Help

Hey Guys and Gals,

i live and work in the greater Tampa Bay area and i'm having trouble finding anything except Solenopsis and
Monomorium Pharaonis queens, i've been waiting for months now hoping to catch a Camponotus, Tetramorium or Odontomachus Brunneus Queen, I have a Solenopsis Queen and she has brood but I know how tricky they can be for novices.

Is there any specific region or area (park,city, anything) anybody can suggest to help me locate a queen of the above species, or really anything thats not a fire ant.

( also I kept the Solenopsis Queen because I didnt't know what species she was until she had already laid some brood and I might as well have killed her as let her back into the wild until her first workers grew)
