There were many queen ants flying in Binghamton NY where I live yesterday since it was camponotus nuptial flight and I caught 2. One was definitely a C.Pennsylvanicus but the other one was a tad smaller and she had a reddish tinge on her thorax. I think she is a noveboracensis queen but just wanted to make sure since I seldom see them in my area.

There is no volume on  my computer, but anyways, can you get some images? That video is not good enough to work out detail and it's shaky.

I would but I don't want to stress her out. I'll get some pics next time I check in on her in like a week

Update: I found out for sure that it was a Camponotus noveboracensis from mrlovetheants youtube comment on a different vid where i caught the queen. This thread is closed
