Can’t find the flight schedule for Pyramid Ants

Hello I live in Texas and was looking to possibly start a colony of native Pyramid Ants because of their vulnerable status in my area and their unique ability to tackle garden pests and invasive species, and I can’t seem to find any info on when they fly. Would anyone here know? The specific ant is Dorymyrmex insanus I believe

It seams Dorymyrmex have their nuptial flights around August and October.

Thanks a bunch! I was having a lot of trouble since it seems like it’s a bit uncommon

I did some research and I think they fly sometime around March in the northern hemisphere. 2 people found their queens in March. When they stop flying I do not know
