First is 10mm
Second is 15mm

I believe the first is a Tetramorium Caespitum

The second I believe is a Camponotus Pensylvanicus.

I agree with Tetramorium immigrans, but the Camponotus will require better light. Too far west for Camponotus pennsylvanicus.
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.
