Lasius Emarginatus, Food and Nuptial flights Europe

I'm willing to go queen hunting for a Lasius Emarginatus queen. But it is very hard to find a queen in my area. So I would like someone to tell me plz Nuptial flights in Europe and in what place. I live in Cyprus if it helps. I have been searching in the internet MONTHS now and still nothing.. Also could you please tell me the food they eat. Thx! :D

Also I would search after a rainstorm... But here in Cyprus the weather IS SOOOOO DRY AND HOT, we almost never get rain..So I can't search after a rainstorm though it's ALWAYS HOT IN SUMMER, from 30-45 degrees Celsius, if that helps with hunting.

the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the shadow ants(formica subaenescens)

Well I just looked there and there is nothing, for Cyprus. Well it's always like that though here in Cyprus, we are so entomologically back we don't know sh!t. :cry:

Usually lasius ants do not have nuptial flights in winter (usually).
