Ants In Massachusetts. When do I catch them?

I have gone outside every time after a rainstorm passed, one or two days ago. I have found only but, 2 queen ants, both Camponotus pennsylvanicus. One of them had died and the other keeps eating her eggs. What do I do? Please help! I need to find other queen ants but I have no Idea where or when to look. I am stunned. I hope that this group of honorable people will help me and my crisis. Thanks! #Antloveforever :D

also i would try to look like 5 minuets every day. "CONSTANT VIGILANCE" according to mad-eye-moody in harry potter, and he is right when trying to find queens. try searching a little bit every day.

Sometimes queens will lay trophic eggs just for eating. This is a sign the the queen may not be fertilized.
