I looked at some of the ants website, but none of them gave me the needed information. I went and caught an ant near my home and wanted to see if it could be identified. I could then search up the nuptial flight times for that ant. I think it may be Manica hunteri but I'm not sure.

I apologize beforehand if the pictures are blurry- I don't have the best picture-taking equipment. :)

I agree with Ants4fun. Linepithema humile .
Probably the most common ant in urban SoCal.

My first queen was a Linepithema humile. I only found 1 and she laid 6 eggs, ate them and then died. RIP. If you find 1 Linepithema humile alone, leave it be unless you also find workers for it, awesome people on the forums told me that, I just could not find any workers for her. I've just got lucky though and saved 7 queens in my pool :)
