Get a box of icing sugar and equal amount of Baking Soda and mix two together. Powder the ants nest with the combined mixture. The ants will go for the icing sugar because of the sweetness, but at the same time as eating the icing sugar, they will also ingest the baking soda. The baking soda will react with the formic acid in their gut, and because ants can't burp (apparently), they will get full of gas and literally explode. Its not a perfect solution as the ants won't take the solution back to their nest, but if you repeat over several days it will severely deplete the nest colony which may cause it to collapse of it's own accord. Icing sugar and baking soda is not toxic to other animals, birds, or children or pets. And this isn't made up. It's true.
