You're probably not going to find Lasius niger in North America, but Lasius alienus and L. pallitarsis will fly July and August, while L. neoniger will fly August through October. The single record for Lasius niger, from California, was in August.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
