Solenopsis invicta, RIFA.

Camponotus is in the Formicinae subfamily, which all have one crest on their petiole (waist-segment.) This queen has two nodes.

Thank you, what is the best way to dispose? Quick crush? Or slow freeze? I know letting them go would cause me more pain

i was going to say let it go but then i thought RIFA right... really the way you deal with her is your choice. if you you have the stomach to crush her i don't care. if you just want to freeze her i don't care. Though if i want to kill something i just stick it in the freeze and come back 10 minuets later.
