Not Tapinoma or other incredibly small ones.
tetramorium?
Tetramorium are fairly aggressive. They do sting humans, but our skin is too thick for them to penetrate. I wouldn't attempt a feeding of Tetramorium just to be on the safe side.

Tetramorium caespitum

100 tiny workers all running around doing ant things sounds great.
This is by far the greatest quote on this forum it's amazing

My colony is about 1 year old now!!! YAY! I have no idea how many ants I have. They fill about 1/2 of my hybrid nest.

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

I'm hoping to catch a Tetramorium sp. queen in the coming weeks. I've been trying to look up some information on when the best time would be to look for these Queens. So far I have found all the Queen's I want except for a Solenopsis invicta (or richteri) Queen but if I can catch one of these gals I would be just as happy as they are fast growing as well.
Keeper of:
Tapinoma sessile

Solenopsis richteri x2
Camponotus pennsylvanicus x3
Camponotus castaneus

Formica pallidefulva x3
Colobobsis impressa

I've seen tetramorium queens these past day or two on my walks. I didn't bother with them since there are super plentiful in my area and I already have a thriving tetramorium colony. I haven't had much luck this year in finding any species that don't fall under the beginner category. The only other species I currently have is a Lasius Neoniger with only two workers. I would really like one of the "cool" species, but, oh well.
