myrmica rubra queen?

I found a queen ant that is approx. 6mm in length and has 2 petiole parts. I found a similar looking ant from an established colony from about a block away that stings (personal experience) and builds shallow nests under wet rotting logs. https://drive.google.com/open?id=14hqdGkmU58jfxC4Gn5yaSRQdCuF...

Can ants climb glass walls?

Can tetramorium immigrans climb glass walls? There are also invasive myrmica rubra colonies in my area and can they climb walls? I know that they build nests on the ground and are mostly terrestrial but don't want them killing my pets. (nano fish, pavement ants, red isopods)

Re: Identify these queens

the queen doesn't look like a camponotus spp. to me. I feel like it might be either lacius spp. or formica spp. to me. Formica polyctena comes to mind but I'm not sure.

Re: Please identify queen ant

Knowing the exact species will help a lot since according to AntWeb 68% of the 98 species found in my region belongs in the Formicinae subfamily.
