Where and when are you finding queen ants? A section to share nuptial flight schedules by ant species and locality

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.
Just found the first queen ant of the nuptial season. She seemed very slow-moving, but I’m hoping that’s just because of the cold weather. I believe it’s a pheidole queen, found at 8:30 am on a clear day, temp. was about 56F. The hunt is on!
