In this manner, how do I permanently get rid of ants outside?

Pour soapy water into the anthill for a safe solution. Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons (4.9 to 9.9 mL) of mild liquid dish soap with 1 gallon (3.8 L) of warm water. Slowly pour the water into each ant nest in your yard. The heat along with the soap will kill the ants and prevent them from escaping their nests.

One may also ask, why do ants suddenly appear? The most common reason that ants invade is because they have found access to sugars and uncovered foods. When they do, they go back to their nest, send a message to other workers, and suddenly swarms of these ants will come into your house to pick up food for the rest of their colony.
