There is almost no way to identify her. We need way better pictures then those.

On the first look she looks like , Lasius/Formica/Camponotus.................. queen

It is surely no Camponotus or Formica species, the abdomen is to long.
I thought about Plagiolepsis, but this picture is really bad.

What do you thing of this queen?

Mabey it is Plagiolepis pygmea, because of that the queens are very small I read.
I think I'm on the right way :mrgreen:

Thank you. The queen looks exactly like this picture, but is a little more black. Like that - Hyperlinks sind nur für registrierte Nutzer sichtbar , but this is Plagiolepis pygmea => my queen is Plagiolepis pygmea.
Thanks

So it is this ant?? :mrgreen:

If you have now only a queen, don't feed her.
She lays eggs without food and feed the larvas.
I think upto the first worker ist takes 1 or maybe 2 months, than you can feed them with crickets.
