Hello everyone!

Here are a few pictures of the ants I found today (Aug 17) in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Could you guys help me figure out what species they are? The queen ants are about 8 mm.

Agreed. Probably Lasius Americanus.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
