Queen ant identification

I have seen these ants all the time and they seem very elusive they only have one worker at a time it seems that goes out to forage even when there is a big colony. So I wanted to research and discover how these ants work and what their daily life is like so I caught one of these queens today as i saw they where flying and want to know the species to see the diet, behavior exe. or even if they have any research at all. Who knows they could be a new species so i came here to ask if any of you guys know what scientific name for these are. Here are is the best pic I could get of the queen the other two are of workers that i could get a lot better pic of as they weren't so panicked.

Some things to note:
-- The queen is about 9.9 mm long
-- They are very fast and sporadic ants
-- They seem to nest more in wooded structures

A location is necessary for ID requests. Looks like Pseudomyrmex.
