Getting Rid of Red Ants

I have a raised herb bed and have got red ants invading it. I have tried numerous ant powders, etc. with no chance of being rid of them.

Please help x.

I've heard pouring boiling water right into the mound works. I read here some use corn meal sprinkled near the top of the mound. Hope this helps.

I read in an ad for a gardening mag. that you can put cucumber peelings on an ant hill and they'd either leave or die. Don't remember which.

Red ants are the only the enemy of termites. I do not run them off. But if were over run with them I would use Sevin. Sevin will them all. Sevin should be used for Jap beetles. Do not use beetle traps.

Also the cleaner 409 is good to use to ants on the patio and decks. 409 is cheap.
