So, I'm new to ant keeping. And on July 30th i caught 4 ant queens, they look exactly the same so i believe they are the same specie, i just dont know what sp. are they, can you guys help me out?

I caught her July 30th, in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

*note: when I shine a white light to their abdomen it turns to a silver like color...

Edit: for some reason there was an error uploading the image

Formica sp.
First year of antkeeping, already enjoying it!

Currently founding:

Lasius niger
Lasius umbratus
Lasius flavus


Still hoping to find a Formica queen.
