I would like to find some more, even though mine is doing so well, with a 11 eggs and all.

Hello my dude I believe that they can still have nuptial flights some nest may be ate however I doubt very seriously that the same colony will have another flight. Good luck with them they are really interesting to keep mine are just now into the cocoon stage so I will have a few workers very soon

I think now that it is very unlikely that C. pennsylvanicus would have another nuptial flight, yet I found another Camponotus queen that I believe is C. herculeanus or C. novaboracensis. So I don't really care about C. pennsylvanicus flights anymore. Thanks for the help!

In northern regions, Camponotus will be flying off and on until the end of July. Sometimes they even fly in the fall.
