New Ant Keeper Looking For some Info

Hello everyone. My name is Brandon and I have been interested in keeping ants for years but have never knew to much. With help from the channel and much research I have decided to start my own ant colones. Now I have watched the videos about catching a queen and identifying the queens and have had no luck even finding one. I have only found major workers and some smaller workers in my travels. Now being new to this I have no Idea when the Ants in my area start their nuptial flights. If there are any England ant keepers out there could you help me out and give me a time when it would be best to search for a queen.
For my first colony I was looking to get a species of camponotus carpenter ant. I have seen them around my house many times and think they will be a good ant to keep for my first. There are also lots of Tetramorium caespitum in my downtown area, but sadly have never seen them flying.
If anyone has some information and is in the new England area please reach out to me.
