I was wondering if I found a social parasite queen. If she is, then what species do I need for her? Thanks.

Sorry, I didn't realise that the files were too big to load and I can't seem to figure out another way to post the pictures. the ant is orange and looks sturdy with all three sections being roughly the same size. She is 6- 11 mm.

You need to upload the image to a hosting site like imgur or flickr. Sounds like a social parasite based on your location and the description, but it would be better to see the queen.
