Ants in the garden

Have noticed two ants nests in garden beds where ants are nesting between the sleepers. I did a search and looks like they might be Carpenter ants or so it says on the ACT TAMS website: "Sugar or Carpenter Ants (Camponotus species) are 5-15mm long, they have orange/brown bodies, black abdomens with an orange/brown band and black heads. They nest in decayed moist wood or sometimes in the soil. They feed on dead and live insects, honeydew, household waste and are attracted by sweet food. These ants do not sting and rarely enter houses."

Don't seem to too much of a problem but I think we'll keep an eye on them for now.
