I cannot be certain, but this might be a carpenter ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae; Camponotus sp.). The best way to tell if it is a carpenter ant is to look at it from the side. If the top of its thorax forms a smooth curve (see http://tinyurl.com/zq3gsaz for an image), it almost certainly would be a carpenter ant. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
