But I don't think you'll do it without some kind of insecticide. I would use a granular insecticide, pick it up at the garden store, don't get too much, it does have a shelf life. Make sure it has ants on the label. I would expect that a 5 pound bag would be plenty. Sprinkle it on, water it in. Apply a week later if necessary.
You don't have to worry about the kinds unless they eat a lot of dirt.... They can even eat some, just not a lot...
