Formica sp.

None of these queens should be given food until their first workers. Food will increase the risk of mold developing.
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.
