My mother has an ant infestation in her gardens. What is a good method to rid them?

I've always had good luck with putting used coffee grounds on the ant mounds. I don't believe it kills them, but they do vacate the area, and they (coffee grounds) don't harm, but are beneficial to soil, compost, etc.
