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.

Formica sp.

Tetramorium caespitum

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