Identify this queen ty

I found her at around 1 pm and she is 9 mm long. The gaster seems too small for it to be a Lasius Niger. It might even be a male i have no idea. Sorry if the pics are bad i really cant take better ones with my phone. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/461832337601200135/461832461509459978/201806...

The queen is poorly lit and barely visible. You will need more photos to have a chance of narrowing it down to the species.
I think i already stressed her enough i will take a new pic when the workers arrive.

Re: Identify queen ty

There are only 4 different species for Camponotus ants in Finland. I'm not sure which one it is cuz 3 of them look very similar. Does any1 know if it's C. herculeanus, C. fallax or C. vagus.

Re: My queen ant won't lay eggs?

I've had 2 ant queens for 2 weeks now and only 1 of them has laid eggs. It might take a little more time. Also do you keep your tube in the dark?

It's about 2 cm long Also is the test tube too small for her. I was planning on keeping a Lasius queen but I'm not sure if this size works for these ants https:...
