I found this one crawling up the wall of our barn yesterday (SW Michigan, near our wooded lot). She appears to have the scars of having wings, so I'm reasonably sure its a queen. she's about 12mm long, mostly brick red with a (mostly) black gastor. Going to get my microscope camera from work to get some better pictures of her face.
I think I have a few in mind but have zero experience in this so going to let the experts around here point me in the right direction. Let me know if you need any more pictures or information. Thanks!
