Ok this queen ant is really stumping me.I caught her on feburary 2nd 2020 in la vernia Texas United states she is about roughly 6-8 mm long red fades into black believe she has a stinger and found her wandering my driveway seeming to look for a place to nest she hasn't laid any eggs yet due possibly to stress or because it is still winter and probably too cold for her. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13JE6bZm_c_N3OJmghGS6OOn0ekUkAje8/view?usp=drivesdk copy and paste this into the search bar I would appreciate the help :P
