Liometopum Apiculatum Setup

I recently caught a dealate Liometopum Apiculatum (thanks to Batspiderfish for the identification in the species ID section), but am having a hard time finding info on captive care of this species. It is quite large for an ant, and I am wanting to get a setup ready for them (if she's fertilized, definitely laying eggs). I figure whatever I use would need decent sized openings for them to move around, but was wondering if anyone here has experience or knows of guidance for them.

My main concerns:
  • Nest materials (want to make myself)
  • Outworld requirements
  • Moisture preferences
