Moved from Ants. Thanks to both of you for the help.

False Honey Ant (Prenolepis imparis)
That would be my guess.

Great behavorial shot!

 
Right subfamily (Formicinae)
But, false honey ant pupae are never enclosed in cocoons. This is Lasius pallitarsis. I would further hazard those are males developing in the cocoons, since they are notably larger than the worker.
