I don't know if you have Ivory brand liquid dish washing soap there, but my grandpa swears by a mixture of Ivory soap, vinegar and water. He says if you wash down the problem area with it, the ants won't come back, or fewer will. With each use, it is supposed to build up and keep them away.

Planting peppermint around the area is also supposed to help. They don't like the scent, so you could also mix peppermint oil and water in a spray bottle and spray the perimeter of the area.
