Also can u help identify this ant? It’s just a worker but I have a queen of the same species so it’s useful to know species. Might be Camponotus?

Ok

1st queen(crematogaster/solenopsis)
0.5cm
2nd queen(solenopsis?)
0.7cm
3rd queen(unknown)
About 0.5cm
Probably infertile bcuz it never laid any eggs
4th queen(definitely Camponotus sp.)
About 1.3cm
I think it’s bigger cuz I fed it recently

I’m scared about the Camponotus bcuz I heard Camponotus sp. gets stressed easily and I get overexcited and check them everyday :?

Did some research I’m pretty sure queen 4 is Camponotus tortuganus but pls check just in case

I mean check the worker pic cos the queen is from the same species as the worker(I know that cos I got them from the same colony when I abducted it as an alate and got it mated with a male I found)
