Ants are my nightmare! All reservations go out the window when dealing with them. I completely agree with the suggestions for your yard and garden but the nest itself which you say is not in your yard, I'd go all out. I had a repeated problem with ant nests in front of my townhouse. I used a spray foam can with an applicator like a straw than you put down the ant hole. It was the only thing that was really effective. Kills them in their nest. I didn't use it anywhere near my garden. Not the organic route but I didn't have ants marching up and down my sidewalk.

Scattering cucumber peels around the hills but not the business ones. Also corn meal, they take it back to nest, they invest it and it expands and they explode. These do work and the numbers will go down but keep doing it when you see new ones.

Diatimous earth is good for ant hills or to control them sprinkle generously and you will probably need to do it after a good rain. It is volcanic dust and it kills the ants by cutting them. It is completely organic and it works
