I found 7 of these queens when they flew Sunday. I would see like 2 on the same tree at a time. Pretty easy species to catch.

Update 5-17-21

All of the queens have pupae and are doing great. I am also attempting a polygynous set of these and they are doing fine. They just got pupae the other day because I ended up catching them a week late and put them in test tubes a week late. As for the other queens they have had pupae for about 1-2 weeks and should be getting workers soon.

All but 1 the queens have around 1-3 workers now. Some should be getting more workers soon and brood continues to grow.
