Safe adhesives

I am moving my Odontomachus queen to a small homemade outworld so she can have her semi-claustral nature. I was told to paste the test tube to the base of the outworld, so i wanted to know some of the most common and easy to find non toxic adhesives for ants? And do things like Play Doh work or not?

Playdoh and clay work fine. School glue is another thing you could use.

The play doh/clay would probably work better for this,

Ok thanks and the thing that bugs me bow is that play doh is hard to dry up and clay dries up easily... so which one better?
