Looks like Solenopsis molesta from the small size and since they're present in Arkansas, but I could be wrong.
Keeper of:
Oecophylla smaragdina
Tapinoma spp. (?)
Pheidole spp.

Temnothorax sp.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
