Ants in strawberries

Hi, I have just recently started growing strawberries. I planted them in a pot and they were fine for about a month. The last couple of days I have noticed ants all over my plant and after careful inspection I realized that they had built their nest in my pot! Can someone please help me get rid of them?
With normal ant piles I would just use poison but I don't know how that would affect my plant. I would greatly appreciate someones help! thx

There was just a post about ants and their benefits. However, if they are a problem you could put a baby powder around the pot. Ants do not like it and will stay away.
