I found this queen ant under a tiny part of a stick today (7/19/17) at 5:45 PM. She is pure black and she is 3-4 mm. She was found in southern Louisiana.

I found her while I was flipping over sticks and bricks. This is how I usually look for queens now. I also found a Crematogaster atkinsoni queen under a brick a while ago. I know you probably don't care, but my Crematogaster atkinsoni colony got invaded by maggots. Thank god the queen is still alive.
