Hello,

I could use some help in identifying some ants. What kind of ants are these (images attached -- I forgot to put down a ruler to include scale, if needed, I'll retake the pictures with a ruler)? Are they black carpenter ants? Are they even "black" ants? I seem to have a problem with them in my home for the last 3-6 months.

Thanks,

-d

Thanks. I just looked through each of the listed ants and none of them quite match. :-( Some came very close but I'm not sure.
