Camponotus pilicornis is an ant found throughout all of middle to southern Europe. They enjoy mid to arid environments. Because of their smaller size compared to their relatives, they also grow faster which makes for a good species to house in a large nest.
From my own experiance this species enjoys a fairly standard environment, with humidity being around Low to Mid.
