I suggest looking underneath rocks and logs. I find a whole bunch of queens under those. I've also heard pools are magnets for them, but have never had expierience with pools :? . But overall, catching dealate queens during the actual flight time is ideal, in my opinion. I've found abut 20 in one flight in about 20 minutes, and it also assures that they are probably fertile.

Good luck on catching queens! :)
