Re: Queens found in Utah on June 13th

To be more specific on the species is impossible without looking at the exact features of their bodies. Antenna, Abdomen, Thorax, etc. They are definetely Camponotus spp. based on the pictures you've provided. To roughly estimate what they are exactly: Camponotus Pennsylvanicus The video I provided ...

Re: Queen ant found on June 27th 2019 in WV

My best guess to identify what type of ant she is will be inaccurate. Without closer clear images, and a close measurement of the ant's length, it is difficult to identify what type of ant it is.
