Help with ant Identification Please.

Hello everyone.

I caught this queen ant in my bathroom a few weeks ago. I am not sure of what type of ant she is and whether or not I need to be feeding her. I think she is an Acrobat Ant but not 100% on that.
I would hate to not be feeding her if she needs food. Please help me out with this information. I have been searching and searching for this information and can not find it anywhere.

Thank you very much.

Here is the only good photo I have of her.

I am not sure of her measurements but I would say she is somewhere around an inch long.

You'll probably need a better picture and a metric measurement. A general location found would be nice too.

I don't think that's an acrobat ant if it is ~1 inch. That's probably a Camponotus or Formica if it is that size.

I'm thinking campo.
Proverbs 6:6-8

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.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger
