Hey fellow ant-keepers. I'm planning on keeping pavement ants(Tetramorium), and I thought there's no better way to get tips than you guys. If you have any tips for catching/caring for Tetramorium species, I would appreciate it if you shared some tips with me! :D

It really depends on what you are looking for. A lot of tips apply to any kind of ant species. I would say keep your mealworms in the fridge and the founding colonies away from any light, vibrations and disturbances. If you have a cat, make sure it is unable to reach your ant setups. Otherwise the cat might do a the casual shoving stuff of the ledge thing. ;)
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony.

Colonies:
1 - Messor Barbarus
Founding colonies:
2 - Lasius Niger Colony
