Sorry for the late reply.
The latest flights I've seen have actually took place in November. Of course the only species flying around then are the most common and prolific, being Solenopsis, Brachymyrmex, and Dorymyrmex. Prenolepis impairs are then the first to fly in January and February, so anting season in Florida is relatively long.

The past few weeks have been very lucrative for anting. I currently have about 25 setups with some of those having 2 queens. My cup runneth over with ants! I'm really hoping to find some C. floridanus & C. tortuganus. I've got one of those, not totally sure which species she is, yet.

Seems there are more people from Orlando Florida here then I thought! Let me introduce myself, I have been researching ants off and on for about a year. An finally deceided I want to get into it but I am having trouble locating some queens. I tend to work fairly long hours and do not always have the most time avaible to search for queens. I am tempting to give it another go this Sunday, but after that I think I am going to just buy one via Antscanada and the GAN. Seeming how several people here seem to have great succes with finding queens, did not know if anyone had any tips tricks or advice. More so this being my first time, what would be the general success rate of queen to colony (as in getting them from the test tube to starting to make brood and a decent sized colony), cause reading some materials make it seem like chances are fairly low. Thank you!
