They should not and if they do they probably will not get through as it is very hard for ants to chew grout #AntLove.

Yes they can. There's an AC video where the fire nation chewed a whole set of new caverns into one of the mountain nests.

Actually, I checked out the AC biome kit and found out that the "grout" is actually solidifying ground mix, whatever that this, and that they recently switched from grout to the solidifying ground mix. :D
