Next week should have good sized flights. Hoping for Veromessor andrei, Pheidole, Solenopsis, and Tetramorium.

I've found queens on cars, but none of them were fertile

Aphaenogaster occidentalis is flying 

Those are the ones with workers that look like tetramorium, but are a bit larger right? And the queens are kind of smaller than tetramorium and their abdomens are orangey underneath. I can't remember if the ants I am thinking of were called Aphaenogaster occidentalis or not.

It seems to be too early for apheanogaster to be flying. Might just be tetramorium.
