So I had to go to my main office in Baltimore today to cut the lawn and afterwards I was loading the mower up on the trailer when I saw an insect quickly running on the curb. I realized it had wings and decided to take a closer look and sure enough it was a Queen Ant!! I wasn't sure at first cause the head looked pretty small like a male, but the gaster was huge! so I posted here and VoidElecent confirmed that it was indeed a Queen and she was a Formica subsericea!
That's a new species for me so since she is a fully claustral type Formica I'm gonna give it a shot! Here are the pics I took not the best but I got her all setup in a Test Tube and I'm gonna not bother her for awhile as in the Care Sheets it says they can be fairly sensitive to vibration and disturbance.
