Ant nest for Solenopsis Fugax

Yesterday I ordered a solenopsis fugax queen. I have heard that they are very tiny and are good at escaping but I don't know what nest I can buy that they won't escape from. Does anyone know a nest the solenopsis fugax will not be able to escape from?

How does ant poop work?

I heard about ant poop an how it can cause mold.
Is there any way I can prevent ants from pooping inside the nest?
And if they poop inside the nest what should I do?

Re: Ant Queen Identification (Yes, again)
