Heating Cables best way to fit?

Hi what is the best way to fit the heating cable to a Hybrid Nest?
There is a hollow section for the cable.

Campontus

Hi my name is Greg
I have a Queen Camponotus that I caught 10 months ago. She’s going great laying eggs and hatching, but the numbers don’t seem to be growing much, why would this be?
Am I able to introduce ants from another colony?
What are the best foods for her and the workers?
Cheers 😀
