Care for Nylanderia?

I recently caught some Nylanderia queens (and have several eggs from some of them) so I am trying to find care references for this ant, but I'm coming up blank. I am seeing that they are related to paratrechina longicornis, so perhaps I can simply treat them as such? Does anyone have experience with this genus who can help me?
