I caught this little ant roaming my bathroom, I put her in a test tube and she has laid eggs. She is small, around 5-8mm.

Hard to tell without clearer pictures, but I think Iridomyrmex Spp.
Check out my blog: bayareaants.blogspot.com
Keeper of:
Camponotus Modoc(6 workers)
Pheidole Spp (2 queens, about 10 workers)
Possibly parasitic Formica (further ID required)
Novomessor Cockerelli (10+ workers)
