neighboring colony. having trouble identifying. but I am new to identifying.
My hope is it is Pavement Ants.

my magnifying glass isn't powerful enough.

about half the length of a fennel seed or the exact width of diamond brand cardboard matches. or match head.

When do they Nuptial?
Founding:
3 Solenopsis I/X
5 Tapinoma sessile

The difference between a hobby and a scientific pursuit, is detailed notes.

Not sufficient for an ID, but Forelius or Dorymyrmex.
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.
