Ant found in Virginia

I found this ant in Goode, VA which is near Lynchburg. I found it at about 3 P.M. today. It is about 1 mm in length. I'd like to know what species it is and if it is even a queen.

Need Help Extracting a Colony From Wood

I just found this piece of wood with a newly founded Colony in it. I wanted your guys suggestions on how to extract it into either a test tube or my formicarium. I thought about putting a dark test tube in the container with the wood, but I doubt this would work. Anyone got ideas?
