Re: Ant Identificarion

Or at least submit the photo in a higher resolution so that we can see anything. This is more like a thumbnail.

Re: Need help on ID queen

I don't know the circumstances by which you found these queens, but sometimes Formica are involved in co-founding of colonies and one of the queens will be evicted. Myrmica are semi-claustral, so they are out during the spring foraging for their brood back in the nest.

Camponotus sp.
Why not C. pennsylvanicus? The photo quality?
No accurate measurement. 1/2" would lie directly between the Myrmentoma and Camponotus subgenera

Re: Species ID

Probably Nylanderia sp. Keep in mind that ID requests become less accurate with fewer details.

Re: Moving colonies help!

It's not so much what you are moving a colony into, but the stress/energy cost of the move itself should not be instigated until the colony has reached a certain size.
