welp judging by your location i'd say just go black lighting every night and look around at aroud 8:30-10:00 each night when you get a chance. so far I'm finding tons of B. patagonicus but i'm sure if you look at Dspdrews ant mating chart you'll find something.

Black bulbs emit infrared and you need uv for black lighting. uv flashlights are thankfully quite cheap.
