Campanotus Chromaides

So I think I have the species of queen properly ID as camponotus chromaiodes. And this is likely a very dumb question but maybe not. I'll let you decide.

Re: Washington, DC Area - Coming up with nothing =(

REALLY?!?! So many reports of people getting Camponotus now in regions that get warm later in the year than Virginia/DC Area. Hey I'll take all the hope I can get.
