Another Queen?

Very small, around the size of my finger nail again. Think she may be a worker. Found yesterday in Rhode Island.
Sorry for the red tinted test tube.

Re: Does my outworld need to be light?

It doesn't half too. Some people put it near their window so when it's sunny outside it's sunny for the ants, and when its dark outside it's dark for the ants.

Heating cables?
