Pheidole in NY?

I have always wanted to keep pheidole ants and I know that they fly between June and July so I figured now is the time to look but just how common are they in New York or other Northeastern U.S. states?
Been ant keeping for 1 full year now and have 1 successful Tetramorium sp. E colony, 2 Lasius flavus queens, and 1 Lasius neoniger queen! Even though I’m fairly new, I’m passionate about the hobby and appreciate much advise!

Ive heard they are around here in NY but very rare to come by. If you get any info on them and what species is here in NY please let me know as well. Hard to even find info on them in NY.

My location Upstate NY
2 Tetramorium Immigran Colonies #1 [40-50 workers] #2 [5-7 workers])
1 Lasius Neoniger Queen [waiting to lay after Hibernation]
