A little help Identifying, please. I was researching, was hoping for campo~ but, looks like lasius.
She started laying eggs 11 Aug, so I have been leaving her in the dark.
Here is a crappy photo, she is about 1cm long.

They still want to stay in the orange container... attempting to "force" them to a more suitable test tube.. by light.

Lasius sp. Can we get better lighting? It makes IDing more thorough.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
