Default Ant Problem Near Garden Pond

Has anyone any suggestions about how I can control ants near to a waterfall
running into a pond with fish in it. All the products that I have seen give
dire warnings about use near a pond.

Can anyone please tell me how I can get rid of, at a last count, 5 ants nests
and still keep the fish safe?

I know it would be possible to use one of the ant traps with a poison block in
it which would prevent the chemical getting into the water but, in the
assuption that some of the ants died on the waterfall and got washed into the
water, would this kill the fish.

Help greatly appreciated from someone who is fed up of getting stung by ants.
