I am new to ant keeping and I want to figure out what species this is because I want to know all about it. Specially for being my backyard ants.

Can anyone please tell me which ant this is on the attachment?

Ps: I live in South Shore Massachusetts, this ant has 1 visible petiole, It is blackish-brown and I would consider it to be extremely very small compared to other ants.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8
