Please help, I believe this might be a queen. Found today in Seattle WA USA.

Is it a queen?
Species?
Is a wet paper towel jammed at the end of the test tube ok?

This is a carpenter ant queen (camponotus species). Keep her in a proper test tube setup. In the current setup, the queen is not getting any air as the wet tissue is making the test tube air tight
