I have a mound in my front yard thats been there for about 8 or so years far as I can remember.
Cant tell you how many different things I have put on them to try and kill them.
the mound was gone last year and I thought they were finally gone but I see they are back and working hard.
the grass is pushed up in a 3 foot area a good 2 to 3 inches....probably been there 8-10 years, maybe longer. its got to be well established
If you stand in the area for a few min they will start climbing up your pants.

there has got to be someting I can feed these little bastards that will wipe them out.
I got neighbors so I cant blow them up

Five gallons of diesel, a gallon of gas to set it off.

Light it with tracer fire, at least .30 caliber.

terro liquid ant baits, just leave them out near the mound and keep giving them more as they eat it up. Soon, you will notice they are no longer eating the baits as fast, then they will all be gone.

Find a good price and try it. It works and it's satisfying. Dump it on the mound(s) and along any trails that they may take. If it's dry out, the bastards will be dead within the day.

You have to use bait on them. That other crap doesn't work, they will just pop up in another spot. Baiting will kill them all as long as they go for it.

I'm going to second the boric acid posts. My parents had ants for years and just couldn't get rid of them with the fanciest poisons. Borax and sugar water wiped those motherfuckers out.

Borax and sugar water.

ETA: Used as bait/food you're not smothering the mound in this though that might work.

I've never tried this, but my neighbor swears by it:

Pour about half a bottle of club soda on the mound.

The liquid will drown some, and the CO2 will settle in the lower passages and suffocate them...

Plug off all but one hole in the mound. Get some smoke bombs like those they sell for the 4th of July, light and direct the smoke into the mound. Use half a dozen or so, plug the hole, and voila. Problem solved.
