Ants in top of flow supers

Hi all,
On the weekend I inspected my hive for evidence of the queen due to the fact I missed a swarm a few weeks ago. Lucky for me there is a queen as I have new larvae and brood that has been capped. However, I noticed that ants have decided to start to make a nest in the upper part of the Flow super where you put the levers to open the frames.
My question is - is there an easy way to get rid of them? The super is getting very full of uncapped honey and I really don’t want to have to empty the super to get rid of the ants. Any thoughts and suggestions would be welcomed.
