No. The only parasitic Lasius have small gasters and large heads. Anything from the flavus group or niger group is not parasitic.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
