non toxic Epoxy. Hmm i don't think that exist. in Denmark you have to have a safety certificate to work with epoxy, that is how dangerous it is, i have taught this certificate. the problem is the largest when the epoxy is drying and the worst part is actually the hardener not the resin all thou both at toxic. when it is dryede it is more or less safe, as long as you don't eat it and the dust and wapers if you saw or sand it can be harmful. the thing is that it takes very long time for it to dry compleatly, this is normally a problem becors after the first hardening time the wapers are extremely limited and will be carried away with normal ventilation, the problems ocure when used in a closed container then the concentration of the toxic wapers will rise.
I don't know how this will effect ants, but generally i use causesion with epoxy. The way epoxy is used cower large flores in living/office space in the USA, is in my opinion a bit problematic, all thou it looks so cool 8-) ;)
