Ants & big ants with wings… :(

Ants & big ants with wings… :(

While cleaning today I moved over my confederate jasmine's pot to find little ants, and larger ants with wings. I thought repotting would be necessary so I tried to separate most of the existing soil from within the fibrous roots and try to leave it more bare. I then set it down, realized more fell out, turned it upside down to see it's an infestation! What techniques do you all recommend I do to get rid of this problem? It's sitting outside, a roundish conformed soil and roots... (consider, this was an inside plant!) Edit: I'm considering "drowning them" in the sink that has a trash compressor underneath it...we'll see...
