I caught this queen on Monday at around 7:30-8PM in my parking lot, and she already has her first set of eggs! Can anyone help me ID her species?
More info:
Length: approx 1-1.2cm
Color: dark honey color with dark brown bands on her abdomen.
Other features: Large, rounded abdomen, dark brown to black mandibles which are easily viewable to the naked eye.
