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?

[Urgency] Shipping ants from England to Spain

I want to ship some ants (a small 5 workers myrmica rubra colony) to Spain.
Will they be held back in customs, I have checked the list for species not allowed and this one is allowed.
And what is the best postal service that will gurantee that my ants don't stress out due to disturbance?
