You could try an air conditioning bomb such as the one in the video clip in the link below.

Re: Scuttle ants

I found the sound quality on Noels link quite poor due to the traffic this one might be a bit clearer..

Re: Scuttle ants

That liquid ant killer works, it gives them a fungus
that kills them, the ones that eat it take the fungus back
to the nest and they all die.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
