its cold out. im from buffalo new york and its around 35-45 degrees out. i was looking around for a false honey pot ant queen just for something to do, i found a whole colony in a rotted out log, i spent an hour and half carefully packing every one of them up + brood. but there on the small side and im not sure what they are. after putting them in my small hybrid nest i looked around google for awhile and got stumped. pleas tell me what you guys think :) https://photos.app.goo.gl/55Ze60RXtW7xUOgy2
