Hey guys I'm relatively new to ant keeping. I have recently caught two Queen ants that I can't identify. They are both relatively 6-7mm in length and I'm in the east coast of the United states.

No way for me to tell which ant I'm looking at.

To me, both look like Crematogaster Sp. They are the only species that size and shape flying at the time.
