Any sightings in central Florida? Looking for camponotus species.

Only thing I've seen so far was a single fire ant colony with a few alates swarming the day after after a storm. I did manage to find a pair of termite alates after that same storm, so I'm giving them a try. Hopefully alates will start swarming soon as the weather starts warming up within the next month. I'd love to get a camponotus queen, they're right up there on my list with along with odontomachus. I'll keep my eyes out and try to come back here when I've found something.
