[5 mm queen + colony] Brazil - Sao Paulo

Hello everyone,

On June I caught this queen. Since then, I have been taking care of her. Now the colony has 15 workers, but I don't know what species they are.
The queen has about 5 mm long, red-dark color. The workers are brownish-transparent, about 3 mm long. No majors, all are the same size, they only eat insects and sugarwater, sometimes honey. I tried other foods but they don't accept.
Here are some photos, sorry for the quality but they are so tiny, it is very difficult to take good images.
The colony is living in a test tube, and it is a mess, very dirty. There is a new one connected, but they are not willing to move.

Link for the photos:

If someone could help me to identify them, I would be very grateful.
