Happened to go camping in the Utah mountains on Nuptial Flight Day for Camponotus. It was awesome :)

Do you know if they are still flying in the Mid-west?

A friend collected 12 or so four days ago in the same spot I collected these, so there seem to be some still out there, at least here in the Utah mountains.

I would hate finding a queen out of state knowing that I couldn't bring her home! Best bet is to keep your eyes off the ground :)
