I saw this Big ant with a big butt crawling up on the side of my house outside, really slowly. Is this a ”queen” ant that’s pregnant or something? Or is it even an ant at all?
Many people make the mistake of misidentifying the Oil Beetle for a queen ant. Oil Beetles are Blister Beetles in the genus Meloe.

Oil Beetles are not capable of slander, the making of false statements that would damage a person’s reputation.
