Hi, I'm sure it's dependant on your set-up. Sorry it's so quiet on here, not sure where everyone has gone to!
Our colony of Atta cephalotes is in a display unit, 3m x 2.6m x 600mm. I keep the humidity around 70% ambient, but the humidity inside the nest is higher than that. We don't have an internal nest humidity data recorder. I hope someone else can help you with this info soon.

I keep my Humidity at 99% and temp at 24 - 26 Celcius. They prefer as high as possible humidity so the the higher you can get it the better.
