Sealing components/parts inside the nest

I'm making a small formicarium and I would like to put a few sensors and LCD in it, but I need to seal the components somehow. I purchased "PENOSIL Premium Greenhouse Silicone", but I'm not totally clear if it's safe. The package doesn't state anything about any additional components, but as far as I know some building materials contain substances that repel insects. Is this type of silicone safe? is there a better material? Thanks!
