Lasius neoniger, most likely (given your location). Lasius pallitarsis is the alternative. They can only be told apart by looking at the teeth on the mandibles.
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.
