Well now that I looked at all the pictures you have of her I'm not certain of my assumption I know it isn't a camponotus now sorry I didn't see the other pictures and thought she was much bigger as I said batspider could probably ID her

Well, we can tell they are myrmecine ants. Solenopsis or Pheidole are the most likely possibilities, given the description of their nest.

Is there any way to turn off noise-reduction on your camera?
