Hi I was at a park and found this here worker.

I wanted to know this Id because From people I heard that knowing what species live there can help predict flights so

This is why I wanted to know the species

I do know that it is not camponotussince it has a different body shape and I already saw some camponotus workers in the same area

my guess is it is ethier Phedoile,tettermorium or lasius

I wasn't Able to catch any this year But I have marked A camponotus nest.

During flight season would that be a good place to be around.
