Okay ant 1 is a Crematogaster Sp. I'd need to see more details for more in depth answer.

And ant 2 appears to be Lasius sp. but again I'd need suuup er close pictures of the workers to give a positive id.

Parasitic Lasius for sure the gaster is thinnerthan most of the species a single petiole. Amd a little trick I kinda learned. Acanthomyops (parasitic lasius) have an almost lobster or shrimp look to the leg position of the front legs.

Re: What species is this?

Lasius love sweets. Sugar water honey syrup a piece of candy, lol. But because peanuts are not part of their natural diet I doubt they would eat it if ya need protein for brood ask a pet store if you can get a single cricket to try they may give ya one for free as a trial.
