Hey All! I caught this queen early may of 2016 and I was wondering if anyone knew what she was. I caught her in Maple Ridge, BC. She is about 13mm long with a red thorax and black body. Her nanitics are about 6mm long as well. She did not lay any eggs for a while but it took about 1.5-2 months for her first workers to arrive after she laid the eggs.
