Help ID PLEASE Caught my FIRST Queen!

Hey everyone! So, I’m VERY new to ant keeping. However, I am super excited to get started and have been doing SO much research. As the subject states, I caught my very FIRST Queen, assuming it is in fact a Queen, today, 19 May 2020. So, I think she is a Solenopsis invicta. I live in East-Central Louisiana. Here are a few pictures, I’ll try and get some more if needed. If she is in fact a recently bred RIFA, how long should I expect to have before she should be ready to move her colony into an actual Formicarium? Everything I’ve read says they multiply at an astonishing rate.
