Formicraium/Ant Set-up help!

Hello fellow ant keepers, I have just been lucky enough to find a Banded Sugar Ant Queen, however due to her large size I am unsure what artificial nest would best suit her. Or would it be better if it was a natural nest she formed in a substrate mix. Could anyone direct me to the right set-up I should go for with this species?

Cheers, ShadowNova

Wouldn't a hybrid Camponotus nest be a good match for them too?
