Hey everyone, I just caught my first queen (I think?) and I am not quite sure about the species. It looks like a tetramorium, but I'm not sure. I found her under a rock in Massachusetts with a half a dozen workers and brood. This ant is about 8 mm, and the workers were about 5-6 mm.
She is a queen, right? And what species?
I also found an orange ant in the same nest. Was this orange one just an ant that had been recently hatched, or something else? I'm curious, since the orange one was different than all the others.
