Ya ok jeez found three in the same area, wonder where the queens are? Thanks! What do you think the above queen is?
We'd need a clear, well-lit image of the gaster and one of the queen's face to ID fusca-group Formica.
Ok I'll try for a better pic tonight. Thanks again.

I'm not so sure about Formica subsericea for the first queen, but yes, the second ant is a Formica male. You can see the claspers at the tip of his gaster.

Re: Queen Ant ID help

Hi ACF again, I also found a couple of these at work, can someone please ID? They're 10mm long. The long gaster, does that mean male? Thanks. http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii547/Option25/20180705_135906_zpsg8jvasfs.jpg http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii547/Option25/20180705_135846_zps6r4hm...

Could you please tell us if they all look basicly the same? Like are the colours the same and the sizes and such?
Yep they are identical in color and size; solid black and 8mm's long. They were all caught in the same area.

Queen Ant ID help

Hi ACF, I found a bunch of the below type Queens here in Western Canada, some have laid eggs some have not, I didn't want to disturb the Queens that have so I took pics of the one that hadn't laid any yet. Could someone please confirm this Ant species? She is 8mm. http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums...

Sometimes a drop of honey on a piece of tin foil helps them settle.
Ok worth a shot, thanks for the tip!

Thank you! Camponotus herculeanus.
Great! Thank you Batspiderfish, much appreciated! Any ideas why she wants out or will this urge go away with time? I'm probably just overthinking it.

Re: Ant Queen ID

Here's hopefully some better pics, I tried my best to highlight her head. Still digging away at the cotton too! http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii547/Option25/20180621_172320_zpsfv7yc2cs.jpg http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii547/Option25/20180621_172321_zpswbpnfoyj.jpg http://i1259.photobuck...

Can we get a picture of the front of the head? Is the measurement accurate?
K no problem, I will later when I get home from work.

Thanks!
