Here are some more pictures of the queen.
The most noticeable feature to me is that she has three yellowish colored rings on her abdomen, the first worker also just enclosed seconds after I took this picture and also has the rings

She looks like either a dark Camponotus chromaiodes or C. pennsylvanicus. The images are still really dark.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
