No way!
The first one is Lasius- likely Lasius neoniger.
The second is a plug-headed Camponotus species- likely Camponotus impressus. https://www.antweb.org/images.do?genus=camponotus&species=impressus&rank=species&project=georgiaants
Third is a Ponerine of some sort- feed this one its semi-clausteral.
Fourth is the black Formica species we have seen before, right?
The fifth is the Cyphomyrmex we saw before right?
Sixth- different black Formica sp?
Seventh- Monomorium?
I know this is not an ID thread but I'm curious how these stack up. :) Really like the plug-headed Camponotus queen, I have seen only one colony of such ants here in California, and here the only plug-headed Camponotus we have are C.yogi. https://www.antweb.org/images.do?genus=camponotus&species=yogi&rank=species&project=californiaants

Camponotus

yes, the plug h. camponotus is one of my favorite finds this year, next to the big camponotus. i still havent seen the plug h. colony. this queen literally fell in my arms while at the park watching the kiddo play. i was so fascinated with the head, as i had never seen one, or even heard of them. :)
