I have always followed my Grandmothers ideas and they usually work very well. Boiling water, not just one kettle full but three or four, more if necessary then add a large dose of salt. You may have to do it every two or three years so watch the same spots and you lift a weed and any ants come up put the kettle on quick. I once unearthed a nest of flying ants in a Dutch wall. It took six or more doses of boiling water to eliminate them, but it was four years before I saw another ant anywhere near that spot again. It didn't kill any of the plants or bulbs.
