C pennsylvanicus are flying right now. Found one yesterday, and one today. Was not even looking for ants, just happened across them.. tonight would probably be good if it is not raining and storming. Planning on going to a parking lot, under street lights. If they are flying I can usually find 5 or 6 pretty quick, of those and C castaneus.
