Ants in my Compost Bin

Ants in my Compost Bin

Everything has mulched down nicely in my compost bin and it should be ready to use. However, as I was turning it the other day, it became apparent that there's a nest of ants in there. It's definitely a nest, the little blighters were carrying eggs around! My question, obviously, is how can I get rid of them without hurting the good insects in there? I don't want to use ant powder. I've also stopped putting my kitchen waste in there for the time being too. Thanks in advance!
