Haven't seen any nuptial flights yet but I have seen alates in all the fire ant mounds I've destroyed. Franklin co. NC

There is a massive nest of camponotus castaneus in my front yard. I check every night but no nuptials yet. I really want to keep this species.

Solenopsis invicta must have flown this morning in Charlotte. Found 1 on my driveway and about 20 swimming in the pool with their wings still attached.
