I use dawn detergent and hot, hot water. We have many red ant piles around, especially after it rains. So, I take my dawn detergent and squirt it thoroughly over the ant piles, then I get a gallon pitcher of hot water and pour it on top of the ants. They die very soon. If they don't all die, repeat the process in a day or so.
