Okay guys, i get a Polyrhachis Dives colony and they requied 60% humidity. I keep them in a container and a nesting test tube and a drinking test tube. The top of the container has a hole for the ventilation. I put a mesh for make a barrier. The humidity level in the container is 30%.
But my question: How can i make more humidity for the ants? Can i put more test tube to increase humidity level?
Sorry for my bad english language!

I don’t think you will be able to achieve 60% humidity with a ventilation hole. But adding more water is how you increase humidity.
