Hey! I have a question, what time of day should I go searching for ant queens?
for the last month I've been searching for 1 to 2 hours a day for ant queens at different times of the day and never found one, must I wake up early in the morning, or go on an expedition at night?

The best times for me were early in the morning. Just after sunrise

Thanks for the reply, I tried this and found a queen this morning! However I also tried looking for queens just when the sun sets near lamp posts and found 3 queens in one spot, all fertilized, it was raining that day so I'm guessing that also had something to do with me finding those 3 queens.
