Hey! The way you posted the photos makes it where we can't see it. Here's two links, one to a video on how to post pictures, and the other on how to take pictures for ant identification. Can't wait to see your queens! :)

Formica sp. in the rufa group. They will need Formica (fusca group) pupae to survive.

No, they are parasitic. You need to give them the pupae so they will form a colony.

They also don't need to be from the fusca group. Any Formica pupae will do.
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.
