Yeah, this is Lasius umbratus. You should be able to use most kinds of Lasius, but most of the past successes have come from the niger-group.

That spike is called the petiolar scale, and all ants from Formicinae have one.
Oh, ok. What ants fly next in NYC? Found T. Sessile queen, it died. The other queens look fine, like if they were founding normally though, strange. Maybe I'll just wait 'till the next queens fly :(

A friend of mine in NJ, MrILoveTheAnts says it looks so. I'm gonna try getting workers maybe like tomorrow. Just don't wanna go through this hassle again.
