As you can see, they are in a natural habitat that I have just put them in. They have been "rescued" from a log about to be tossed into a fire. I will update weekly. Colony is about 70-100 workers large.

This is definitely not Camponotus chromaiodes. If anything, they seem to be Camponotus americanus. Could you possibly post some close ups of the queen and all the info required for an ID? That would help me out a lot.

Camponotus americanus are orange. I agree this is C. chromaiodes, if not Camponotus novaeboracensis.

I have them IDed by many people on the FaceBook community. They all said chromaiodes.

Okay. Don't these look kind of reddish-orange and black/brown to you? I think I may be getting confused because I am colorblind :P
