You need a measurement and location. :)

Re: 03/23 Hungary Queen(?) and other workers ID please

No luck for the species. The queen is Myrmica, which are nearly impossible to ID with basic photographs. The Lasius would need much more detail as well.

Re: Queen Id please

Well, It's hard to tell from the pictures. She is probably Monomorium, but there's no way for me to confirm this.

Re: Unprepared beginner?!

Fruit flies from the pet store, then frozen, would be fine. I'd also suggest catching up on more traditional methods of care, providing a test tube and foraging arena.

Re: Tiny Tetramoriam Queen

Tapinoma queens average at about 4.5mm, so that's a bit of an exaggeration. Definitely the wrong subfamily, though.

It's Camponotus. Possibly C. castaneus
C. castaneus is a large species of Camponotus. This is Camponotus subbarbatus, or a close relative.

Re: Queen Id please

Yeah, we need more pictures -- one from above and one from the side to go with this image of the head.

Re: Tiny Tetramoriam Queen

Doesn't look like Tetramorium to me. That head is too shiny.

Re: Any alternatives to feed ants?

Feeding off wild insects is ill-advised in areas where pesticide usage is common.
