I know that the first is a camponotus (pennsylvanicus is my guess but it can't hurt to be sure) and the second one I have know idea.
almost one year of ant keeping :D

keeping:
a restarting camponotus queen
one crematogaster queen
and a bunch of lasius umbratus queens (to lazy to count them all) :lol:

no pic
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

my first guess from the shape of the gaster is crematogaster.
