If you are going the organic route, then the KM Ant Pro system is about the only choice. It's expensive, but it works long term and is what most of the commercial growers use in California, Texas and Florida to control ants.
Depending on the species of ant, Award II may help to control the problem if they will feed on it. If not, then the Ant Pro system may be the only real solution.
Overall, there is no simple cheap fix for ants that are in an orchard. Controlling them can be difficult and it takes an engineered solution in most cases. Not simply dumping powder or retail chemical on the mounds. Check out these products and if you have any questions, let me know.
