First formicarium

First of all, excuse my english, it is not my first language.
Second, I caught one lasius niger queen and I am starting to build my formicarium. It is made out of plexiglass and is sturdy on its own, but I was thinking about sealing all edges with silicone. Will my ants try to chew through it or will they just settle in dirt that I provide them? Also, any site where I can buy cheaper PTFE since most sites I found were pretty expensive considering my abilities with money (I'm 18 without job for now so I don't have that much money). Thanks in advance :)
