Hello, I think I got a queen!

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
Ants I have-
camponotus compressus colony- the shadow warriors.
2x pheidoli parva queens (founding and will be sold/released)
Need more queens but mom won't allow it :cry:
