I found this couple days ago in Minnesota. Well more exactly, in St. Cloud. She was just walking around on the sidewalk. She just started laying her eggs couple days ago and currently I'm keeping her in a test tube setup in a box. She kinda looks like lasius species.. but then again she also looks like camponotus... please help me.
Thank you.

Not Lasius. Looks like Camponotus. Probably Camponotus pennsylvanicus.
