[video:vimeo]https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J2uOYFEyi83nVIzLRtm7z6cdbvBqfVM6/view?usp=sharing[/video]

Was watering my ivy out back the other day and these came pouring out of the ground. The video is wrong...they are closer to 3/8" long.....thought harvester ants at first but not so sure...these are a bit larger. I've never seen these before....some variation of carpenter ant perhaps?

Carpenter ants have black abdomens, not peach.
