Hello together,

i found 10 queen ants today. They were everywhere.
I got too much. So I kept only three.

They all look identical. Here are the pics for identifying them.

Thank you so much in advance. :D

Greetings from Steve

Lasius sp.
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.

Hello Batspiderfish.
Again thank you so much for your help.
I hope the question is not stupid.
But what is the sp. Standing for?
I can't find any species called sp. Or is it social parasite?

"sp." just means "species", so, a Lasius species. Lasius cannot be identified reliably without enough detail to reveal hair coverage.
