Seems like there could be a possible flight right now. It's 3:37am (North-East Pennsylvania), and I have seen a lot of drones so far, and 1 queen. Possibly a Formica spp.

Hi guys, sorry to revive the thread, but im a newer ant keeper, and im fascinated by pheidole. I live in collegeville, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place for me to monitor for pheidole flights this year.

Western PA, I’m not 100% sure of the species, but these ants have been waiting around their nests for the past few days, and today they’ve finally started flying.
