I'm really really confused about these ants. Basically they come to our home when grain is on floor or there is something sweet.

The lenth is around 7 mm - 10 mm. May vary a bit.

The front side is brown. Sometimes almost black. The last node is pure black and shiny.

They keep going inside soil and bring soil out.

When they bite you, they take tiny skin away.

Now, I read some articles and those confused me a lot. I read carpenter ants, black ants, black garden ants this and that. I can't find out which ant are these.

I've observed them in all cities I've visited. Pretty common. My area is Haryana, India.

Here are the images: enter image description here enter image description here How to identify them?

    $\begingroup$ Please reduce the file size and host it on imgur. We cannot access the pictures because they are in your your private folders on Google Drive. And for the future, as a general rule, questions should always be formulated in a way making them straightforward to answer. $\endgroup$ – S Pr Nov 19 '19 at 17:00
