Size: 1.5mm

Nice to have this image of a worker in which the 9 antennomeres can rather easily be counted. That plus the pale brown color (and location) clinches this as the native B. depilis. Several darker colored imports from tropical America inhabit the the Sunbelt states.

James, thanks for the ID and info. It's nice to have a name for this little gal now.
