What can i do about ants in a poplar tree?

My poplar tree is covered in ants and I can't get rid of them.

The ants are going after the tree sap. To stop them, mix sugar with boric acid (powdered) and place at the base of the tree. After a few days, the ant colony will abandon the tree, and the boric acid will have killed or severely damaged the colony.

I have was reading "The old farmer's Almanac" and there i saw an article about insects. I read that if you have insects in your bushes or in your farm, you should get vinegar and spill it at different places. They also suggested to get a soap solution and spray it onto the insects. So you can do this!

The best option is just to leave them alone. They arent hurting the tree and they keep things free of dead plant and animal matter. If truly necessary, ant poison.
