Hey guys, I live in New Mexico and have come across honeypot ant colonies. I am wondering if anyone knows the nuptial flights of honeypot ants and people's experiences of catching the queens. (e.g. time of day and location) I believe I have come across myrmecocystus mimicus and myrmecocystus mexicanus. Thank you so much

I believe that Mymecocystus sp. have their nuptial flights throughout July and August so keep an eye out soon!
