Camponotus Nest Temperature

I have a reptile heating mat and a thermostat to regulate its temperature. I was wondering what temperature to set for my carpenter ant (camponotus novaeboracensis) colony. What temperate do they grow best in? Btw I live in Massachusetts.

The perfect temperature would be a bit above room temperature.
My current colonies:
The miniature military(formica neogagates)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi
the blazing nation(Myrmica alaskensis)
