Now we have capenter ants!

This job is getting much bigger every day. In order to get some wood into the back yard we took down half of an arbour that grapes were supposed to grow on. In an attempt to get the roots and dead plant out we took out the soil to uncover a huge carpenter ant nest. Searched the web and found suggestions to use icing sugar/baking soda mixture and a borax/sugar water mixture. Hopefully that works. Any one else have any suggestions?
My friend Eliz suggested telling the carpenter ants to grab a hammer and help out or move out.
Similar suggestion from my other friend Lizz. "If they're carpenter ants maybe they can help build the shed. lol"
