Can you identify ant

Black ant, red stripe around each section of body, 1/2 to 3/4" long

Wildlife Expert - David Herlocker

My guess is that you are describing a type of wasp called the Velvet Ant. There are many different types found in North America, including some that perfectly match your description.
