Better late than never, I'm just starting this off with this little beetle that came in from the cold recently, I don't know what it is yet
I think it may have been injured when I scraped it off my neck!!
THIS is a link to old thread.

Guess at Nettle-tap but could be a close relative!
I would have said an Ant and a Queen but you beat me to it Hazel :)
Not for me H although do observe their funny antics in the garden still!
We had a funny little insect in the kitchen a while back which I finally managed to identify as a type of ant "Solenopsis fugax" & think its a queen, it looked so funny like a car with a huge trailer, the grey line in the photo is the tile joint & 3mm for size,
While checking the identity around the web, I found out that lots have people have ant breeding stations & they even sell kits on-line. Not my cup of tea but Wendy........maybe!
Looks good to me H ... Happy Birthday on here too!
