Louisiana possible tiny queen ant ID

Hi, could someone please help me identify this (hopefully) queen ant. I am located in southeast Louisiana, and the ant is black and about 1/5 inches long. I included a link which has it on a q-tip for size comparison. I do believe it has a stinger if that makes a difference because it was on me at one point and I ended up with a slight sting and a bump on my finger. Also, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a queen ant in person, so sorry to waste your time if it isn’t a queen in the first place. Thanks in advance!

For 100% this isn't an ant, it's a wasp. Look at antennae ;) .

Thank you very much! It was so tiny I kind of assumed it to be an ant that had short antennae. I never would of thought it was a wasp. :lol:
