new composter needs help

Hi! I just joined this community. I love to garden. I need some advice about my new compost pile. Ants, probably fire ants have taken up residency in the middle of the pile. I thought it was doing really well until I saw that the other day. More importantly, there were hundreds of eggs so they are obviously thriving. This is an organic compost pile and I eat all organic food, so chemicals are definitely out. How do I get rid of the ants?
