We have a dreadful ant problem here, the soil is sandy and ants and their nests are just a fact of life. For the most part, we have to ignore them, unless they are invading the roots of something. We have 10 compost bins, and many of those get nests. Again, we leave then be, they swarm eventually, and a side 'benefit' is they do make the compost nice and fine! I do leave the lids off too, sometimes, and let the birds pick them off.
