Small honey ant queen!

Hello! I found a ant that I presume to be a small honey ant (Prenolepis imparis) however I just wanted to confirm. I also know literally nothing about this species other than that they are pretty rare where I live (east coast USA). I am keeping her in a small tube with plenty of water. I mainly want to know if she is fully claustral or semi-claustral. If any of you know anything about this ant please comment! :arrow: setup images attached.

They are fully claustral if you were wondering.
