Lasius flavus is native to a lot of U.S. states, yet I am not saying that it is right to order even a native species.

There are actually no Lasius flavus in North America. Ours turned out to be a new species, Lasius brevicornis. Hopefully this adds to the point that it is irrelevant whether or not a buyer thinks an ant is native.
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.

Now I'm starting to wonder whether Europe and North America have any species in common.

I now won't be surprised if taxonomists declare that the European and North American Formica fusca and Camponotus herculeanus are two different species.
