Why do you want to kill ants ? Ants feed upon many pests and are a beneficial insect.

You may want to try this

In a pot on your stove, add in seven crushed garlic cloves, one tablespoon of powdered cayenne pepper and three cups of water. Heat up mixture, stirring to completely to combine the ingredients. Try not to bring the mixture to a boil as that is not necessary. Set the mixture aside for forty-eight hours as to allow the ingredients to combine. Once combined, add mixture to a hand held spray bottle and begin spraying your plants as needed.

Just remember to wash your fruits and vegetables thoroughly prior to consumption.

My favorite is neem oil. It's good for plant diseases and bugs! I found you a blog that might help. Neem oil link.
