Hi there,

I tried to identify your queens, but I don't really know if both are native to Hawaii.
The 7mm long queens and workers look either like Monomorium pharaonis or Solenopsis sp.
The 5mm long queen looks to be either Lasius neoniger or Brachymyrmex sp.

I think some more research from your part should be done ;)
Good luck!

I think the 7mm is either Dorymyrmex or maybe even a Solenopsis.
I think the 5mm is most likely a Lasius sp.

Hopefully, this helped!
