Sorry if the pictures are not that clear.
Queen #1 (1 queen caught) I think it may be a Mexican Twig Ant Queen

Queens 2 and 3 I think may be the same species but I am unsure. they all already have a small cluster of eggs as well.

Queen #2 (3 queens caught but 1 has a messed up gaster) Not sure what species.
Image

Queen #3 (2 queens caught) Not sure what species.
Image

Queen #4 (1 queen caught) Not sure what species.
Image

After a day queen #4 almost drowned herself by trying to burrow into the cotton ball separating her and the water in the test tube setup.

Thank you for checking out my post!

Pseudomyrmex gracilis, Dorymyrmex sp., Pheidole sp., and possibly a Crematogaster sp.
