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.

Re: ID this ant (Egypt, October 2016, 3mm)

This looks more like Trichomyrmex to me.
