Camponotus outworld ideas

I'm putting together an out world for camponotus. I've seen tutorials for making terrariums, grout with sand and plastic plants with a feeding area.

Does anyone have any tips to share for camponotus keeping? Anything that would make it more natural for them.

I mean it's not really that big a deal. Ant care and formicarium set up kind of overlap. But you could also post this here http://forum.AntsCanada.com/viewforum.php?f=39

Didn't see the other categorie before I posted.

It will be for camponotus noveboracensis or chromaiodes, haven't got a proper I'd yet.

I want to try a couple things to challenge them, maybe honey in a test tube with mulch or saw dust blocking the opening. Wood bridge of some kind, nothing too elaborate. Don't want them nesting in the outworld.

Any suggestions would be helpful....thanks

You could make a natural set up with real plants . The carpenter ants would probably like if you added a piece of drift wood or something . Just remember that if you make a natural set up you don't need to make an outworld .

What I did for my camponotus colony is break some bamboo sticks to use as decoration, and a bridge from the tube entrance to the food bowl that I made with pottery. There is also a thin layer of sand on the ground.
