Can you get Ant Traps over there? They are available here from Supermarkets and Garden Centres. They work for me.

This is inexpensive and bio-friendly: Boric Acid (Borax powder) mixed with sugar will bait ants to eat the boric acid. They take it back to the nest, kills the nest. Mix ratio 15% boric acid to 85% p'nut butter, sugar or corn syrup. Place in low-edge container near nests. Since all 3 mixtures melt in high sun or humidity, you may need to set this out only at night in the summer. Melted boric acid doesn't seem to work...... Harris roach tablet does the same thing for roaches
