Hi Guys, I caught a couple of these queens last week. It was after a heavy rain storm in the middle of a park. They seem to be Lasius neoniger but I wanted to just confirm with you guys. I know lasius neoniger fly the first week of September. 

Thank you in advance, Mike

Thank you very much Antkid, I appreciate you helping me out with this. Yes, I figured they were Neoniger I just wanted to be sure. No eggs yet. Maybe they are waiting for after hibernation.

Thanks again!!
