Not Solenopsis. Definetly not S. Molesta the northernmost Solenposis, looks more like a Myrmica queen.
Intresting i though they fly only in july to aug i found her at the end of April and she is invasive here as I think she maybe a Myrmica rubra. Any other thoughts

Re: Ant Colony Collapse Disorder. Colony dying. Advice needed.

XXXX. Queen died! My poor Queenie! Still wearing her cape of tattered wings. Some ants crawl all over her corpse, poking her with their antennae; while sick, wriggling ants struggle around them. They turn to me as I shine the torch at them, their antennae waving too and fro, their compound eyes, lo...
