There must've been a huge nuptial flight of this species; they were all over my porch. Caught about 10 females and several other males. The females are about 0.75 cm long. I think either Lasius or Tetramorium. Not totally sure. Caught them around 4:30 PM.


Here are some photos of a queen that was being harassed by a mean Camponotus worker.
